“Steel Magnolias” is based upon a true story. The Shelby in the play is based as Robert Harling’s sister who had passed due to the complications from diabetes. Harling wrote “Steel Magnolias” as a memorial to his sister and as a reminder for his nephew of the type of woman that his mother was.
The play, directed by Victoria Price, is set in a beauty shop in Chinquapin, Louisiana. The action depicts four Saturday mornings over a two-year period in the beauty shop of Truvy Jones, who opens her doors only to the neighborhood ladies on Saturdays.
