This classic play by Robert Harling is set in a small-town beauty salon in Louisiana, where six women bond over gossip, laughter, and tears. The play focuses on the relationship between M’Lynn and her daughter Shelby, who suffers from diabetes and decides to have a child despite the risks. Steel Magnolias is a tribute to the strength and resilience of women who face life’s challenges with grace and humor.
