Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, the play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions.
Heather says: "My favorite summary of this show is “three sisters with a penchant for ugly predicaments”. It makes me giggle a little. I have a gaggle of sisters and, while we do not share that penchant, I relate to the relationships in this show. If my sister does something a little crazy (or if I do), I can point out that it might be a little crazy, but heaven help the person outside of my family that says it is crazy. I will take them down. I love that these sisters are a dysfunctional super squad. Another authentic story with strong leading ladies. (noting a pattern?)"

"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."
"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."
"From time to time a play comes along that restores one's faith in our theatre…"
