Two-week­end run con­cludes

Antelope Valley Press - - SHOWCASE - VAL­LEY PRESS STAFF RE­PORT

Cedar Street The­atre’s pro­duc­tion of “Crimes of the Heart” will con­clude its two-week­end run with three per­for­mances Feb. 7-9 at the Nel­lie and Lou Bozi­gian Fam­ily The­atre.

The Pulitzer Prize win­ning tragi­com­edy fea­tures the three Ma­grath sis­ters who re­unite in their home­town of Hazel­hurst, Miss., for the first time in a decade.

“The story re­volves around how the sis­ters’ past has af­fected their cur­rent lives, Di­rec­tor Gary Sh­waffner said.

The sis­ters re­unite af­ter youngest sis­ter Babe is ar­rested for shoot­ing her hus­band. Mid­dle sis­ter Meg left home to pur­sue star­dom as a singer. Lenny, the el­dest sis­ter, re­mained in Hazel­hurst and served as a care­giver to their grand­fa­ther.

Shaffner said the sis­ters had a bad re­la­tion­ship with their par­ents and their grand­par­ents.

“It goes on and on, but they had a bad rap and they did the best they could as sis­ters,” he said. “Then they kind of all split and went their sep­a­rate ways, did their sep­a­rate things and hor­ri­ble, bad things have hap­pened to them. They’re all kind of drawn back to­gether. The story ends on a very hope­ful note as the sis­ters kind of re­al­ize to­gether, they can prob­a­bly con­quer the world.”

“Crimes of the Heart” will be in the Nel­lie and Lou Bozi­gian Fam­ily The­atre at 8 p.m., Feb. 7 and 8; and 2 p.m., Feb. 9.

Tickets cost $20 each, $18 for se­niors and youth.
