About the Play
One of the most entertaining and popular of contemporary plays, Beth Henley’s comedy Crimes of the Heart won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, the New York Critics Circle Best American Play and a Tony Award nomination for Best New Play. From loves savored and lost to attempted murder, the play takes its characters on a gothic, zany adventure that promises to challenge actors and delight audiences.
“It has heart, wit, and a surprisingly zany passion…it would certainly be a crime for anyone interested in the theatre not to see this play.”
-The New York Post
“While this play overflows with infectious high spirits, it is also, unmistakably, the tale of a very troubled family. Such is Miss Henley’s prodigious talent that she can serve us pain as though it were a piece of cake.”
-The New York Times
