This wickedly funny Pulitzer-Prize winning drama explores the lost love and dreams of an eccentric Southern family. The play bursts with energy, laughter, and a peculiar wisdom as three women provoke, protect, and rediscover each other through shared memories and forgotten dreams.

Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, this is a funny, moving script about the demands, conflicts and bonds of sisterhood. Anyone who has a sister should recognize the special closeness of the Magraths, who talk, cry, argue and love with an honesty and freedom they receive from (and give to) no one else. For them, sisterhood requires sharing. As one of the sisters explains, "'s a human need. To talk about our lives."

Sisterhood is also, inevitably, about conflict. Even the closest of friends -- let alone sisters -- may be rivals for affection and attention. This is certainly true of the Magraths, whose feuds have been years in the making, and the most insignificant incident may bring long-simmering angers to a boil. It takes only a minor mistake to trigger a full-blown confrontation among all three sisters.

The tensions between these women may drive them apart, but their mutual support and love always reunite them. When calamity threatens -- and this family is in constant danger -- they are there for each other. Such sisterly love allows them to begin healing the wounds of the past and to start planning for a better future.

The telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious
