Steel Magnolias

The play is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in Chinquapin, Louisiana. As the title suggests the "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel".

Truvy Jones runs a successful beauty salon, where all the ladies in the neighbourhood have a standing Saturday appointment.

Along with her anxious and eager assistant Annelle, Truvy styles the hair of many of the women about town.

As the women of Chinquapin makes their way over life’s many hurdles together, they find comfort (and a fair amount of verbal ribbing) from one another.

The play was made into a 1989 film starring Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis.
