Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley and Directed by Gay Carducci
The Magrath sisters, Lenny, Meg, and Babe, are reunited at their family home in Hazlehurst Mississippi after Babe shoots her husband. Each one is facing down her own demons, past and present. Lenny cares for the grandfather who raised her as he dies, Meg grapples with dreams that didn’t come true, and Babe squares off against an abusive spouse. It’s a portrait of a dysfunctional family, but Beth Henley’s Pulitzer prize winning play finds laughter within tragedy.

Based on an extremely true story. Fact: priceless artifacts were looted from The Baghdad Museum in 2003 during the Iraq War. Fact: A U.S. marine went in to investigate who was responsible. Everything else is open for interpretation. When a well-meaning veteran meets his ghostwriter, mythologies mix, truth is refashioned into click bait, and reality itself begins to shift. Kennedy’s world premiere is an intense, cinematic thriller that examines the appropriation of narrative and just what it means to print the legend.
