Three sisters in a small Mississippi town await news from the hospital where their grandfather lives out his last hours. Each woman has experienced failure of a different kind, each hurt, yet each finds her own path to a promising new beginning.  Along the way, the laughs and humor highlight the beauty in being human as the women take control of their future. (Dramatic Comedy)

Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle Award

What the Critics Have to Say

“While this play overflows with infectious high spirits, it is also, unmistakably, the tale of a very troubled family. Such is Miss Henley’s prodigious talent that she can serve us pain as though it were a piece of cake.” —NY Times

“It has heart, wit and a surprisingly zany passion that must carry all before it…it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in the theatre not to see this play.” —NY Post

“From time to time a play comes along that restores one’s faith in our theatre…” —NY Magazine
