‘Crimes of the Heart’

Pass Christian Theatre Project will present “Crimes of the Heart,” the Pulitzer Prize–winning comedy written by Mississippian Beth Henley.

Curtain times are 7 p.m. May 4-6 and 2 p.m. May 7 at the Randolph Center, 315 Clark Ave., Pass Christian.

The three MaGrath sisters are back together in their hometown of Hazelhurst, Mississippi, for the first time in a decade. Lenny (played by Elizabeth Boswell), the eldest, never left Hazelhurst — she is the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy. Meg (played by Jane Clair Tyner), the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom as a singer in Los Angeles, but has so far only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. Babe (played by Tara Davis), the youngest, has just been arrested for the attempted murder of her abusive husband.

Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi sun, past resentments bubble up and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.” Other cast members are Kay Benton, Richard Benton, David “Bos” Boswell, Elizabeth Boswell, Tara Davis, and Jane Clair Tyner.

The production is directed by Will Koolsbergen and Mary Ellen Murphy.

Tickets are available at or by calling 228-452-3315. Reservations are recommended. The Pass Christian Theatre Project is a member organization of Pass Christian Main Street.
