Written by Beth Henley and directed by Lynn's drama program chair, Adam Simpson, this story examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at 30 and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, returns home after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after shooting her husband.
"I directed Crimes of the Heart over 10 years ago when the B.F.A. in drama program was just a dream," said Simpson. "Now, six of our drama students will perform in our world-class venue—the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center. I'm honored to direct this production and showcase the remarkable progress our program has made since 2010."
Tickets may be reserved in person at Lynn's Yvonne S. Boice Box Office, located at 3601 N. Military Trail, online at lynn.edu/events (https://www.lynn.edu/
