My Life at the Thearer: Crime of the Heart
Not from the production I saw in 1995, of course. I saw this at the Royal Exchange Theater in Manchester and I think I saw it again at the Hilberry Theater, our university graduate theater company. Beth Henley was the first woman to win the Pulitizer Prise in 28 years for this play. It opened on Broadway in 1981. It was also a movie with Jessica Lange, Diane Keaton and Sissy Spacek.
This was quite a great production, starring Alison Peebles, Robin Weaver and Lesley Sharp as the three sisters.
Henley went on to write MISS FIRECRACKER and other fine works.
