"This cast is really exciting," Jarret Mallon, TexARTS executive director, said. "Christi Moore and Babs George have been in theatre in Austin for years. Combining their experience with up-and-coming talent like Jenny Lavery makes this an amazingly vibrant group. These actors are just as dynamic as the characters they portray."
Set entirely in the in-home salon of Truvy Jones, six women in different stages of life share their moments of joy and tragedy when they meet every Saturday to get their hair done. Between the gossip, advice, and nagging, they are each other's strongest support and best comic relief.
