January 8, 2014 - February 9, 2014
By Beth Henley
Directed by Susanna Gellert
A BRILLIANT REVIVAL...THE PRODUCTION HAS ALREADY BEEN EXTENDED AN EXTRA WEEK. IT DESERVES TO RUN EVEN LONGER. FRESH AND ABSORBING...A DEEPLY SATISFYING PRODUCTION, ONE OF EVERYMAN'S FINEST IN RECENT YEARS. IT WOULD BE A CRIME TO MISS IT.
- Baltimore Sun
EVERYMAN HAS AGAIN PRODUCED THEATRICAL MAGIC...DIRECTOR SUSANNA GELLERT HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER A BRILLIANT CAST AND CREW, CREATING A PRODUCTION THAT IS NOT TO BE MISSED.

RIVETING...AN EXCELLENT PRODUCTION OF A CLASSIC THAT STILL SPEAKS VOLUMES TO MODERN AUDIENCES...A PERFECT PIECE OF THEATRE FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE WINTER AS IT WILL SURELY WARM YOUR HEART.

THE TRIO ARE SEAMLESS IN THEIR BOND. ALL THREE ACTORS BEAUTIFULLY DELINEATED THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SISTERS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the NY Drama Critics' Circle Award, Beth Henley's comedy brings you into the Mississippi household of the Magrath sisters. Babe has just shot her husband because she didn't like his looks. Meg is back in town after a failed attempt in the music business and a nervous breakdown. And poor Lenny - everyone has forgotten her 30th birthday...plus, her pet horse was just struck by lightning! Bad luck certainly runs deep among the Magrath clan. But with warm-hearted laughs and touching family moments, the sisters forgive the past, face the present, and embrace the future in this contemporary American stage classic.
