Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart (Bright Young Theatre)
Bright Young Theatre is proud to present Crimes of the Heart, the award winning drama by beloved playwright Beth Henley. Presented at Little Mountain Gallery, March 30th - April 3rd and April 8th- 10th 2016.
Three sisters reunite in their hometown of Hazlehurst, Mississippi and have to face the past that they have been trying to outrun. Experiencing trauma at a young age, each sister has tried to cope with it their own way. Now, in order to protect their youngest sister, they meet together once again and must come to terms with the choices they have made. Crimes of the Heart is about the resiliency of three women who have seen hardship and have made mistakes, but find the strength in each other to overcome it all.
Directed by Laura McLean, the cast includes Joanna Williams, Melanie Reich, Jordan Kerbs, Christine Bortolin, Andrew Lynch and Jay Clift. Designed by Laura Fukomoto.
Written over 30 years ago, Crimes of the Heart still stands out as one of the most nuanced and heart-wrenching depictions of sisterhood. Gender disparity onstage and off is still an issue today; even more so when Beth Henley wrote this play in 1980. The women seen in this play are powerfully flawed and refreshingly real. Bright Young Theatre, a creative team of all women, is passionate about bringing forward and producing this ground-breaking play that has been an inspiration to generations of female artists.
