Step Up Productions is pleased to conclude its 2014-15 season with Beth Henley’s Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy CRIMES OF THE HEART directed by Brad Akin.

Life hasn’t been easy for the three MaGrath sisters: their father abandoned them and their mother hanged herself – along with her cat. Now, they’ve reunited at Old Grandaddy’s home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi as the family patriarch lies on his deathbed. Lenny is still unmarried at 30, Meg’s singing career has flopped and Babe is out on bail after shooting her abusive husband. Forced to confront assorted relatives and past relationships, the three manage to find meaning and happiness in their lives – even if it is just momentary.
