“Crimes of the Heart” by Beth Henley to come to Scottsdale

The comedy “Crimes of the Heart” by Beth Henly is to come to the Theatre Artists Studio Sept. 4-20.

In Hazlehurst, Mississippi, the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of their grandfather, who is living out his final hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried and facing diminishing marital prospects, according to a press release.

Middle sister, Meg, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back at home after a failed singing career on the West Coast.  Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband, stated the release.

Their troubles are both grave and laughable as, together, they try to escape the past and seize their future. A touching and consistently hilarious story that will linger in the mind long after the lights fade to black.

The cast includes Dee Rich, Debra Rich, Ashley Faulkner, Aaron Seever, Julie Lee and Joshua Vern, according to the release.

The Theatre Artists Studio is at 4848 E. Cactus Rd #406, in Scottsdale. Tickets are $10 for students ages 25 and younger; $20 for general admission; $15 for seniors, members of the military and groups of 10 or more.
