Characters:               4F (24-30)                     2M (26-30)

Lenny Magrath, 30, the oldest sister. Lenny is insecure about her fertility, her appearance, her age, and her role in caring for her grandfather. She is resentful of Meg, whom she sees as always having been the favourite, despite all the mistakes Meg has made. Lenny hides in her caregiving, which gives her an excuse to stay home.

Meg Magrath, 27, the middle sister.  Meg moved to Hollywood to pursue her singing career, abandoning her lover, Doc Porter. She is the most outgoing of the three sisters but recently experienced a mental breakdown.


Babe Botrelle, 24, the youngest sister. Babe is the most fragile of the sisters. A dreamer and innocent. She shoots her husband and attempts suicide after embarking on an affair with a fifteen year old black boy.


Chick Boyle, 29, the sisters' first cousin. Chick is brassy, loud and judgment of her cousins and their behaviours.


Doc Porter, 30, Meg's old boyfriend. Doc is married with two children, however, he is still infatuated with Meg.


Barnette Lloyd, 26, Babe's lawyer. Barnette is a recent legal graduate who is a competent lawyer beyond his years. He has a soft spot for Babe and wants to protect her from her abusive husband.'


This tragicomedy relates the story of the three Magrath sisters, Meg, Babe, and Lenny, who reunite at Old Granddaddy’s home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, after Babe shoots her abusive husband. The sisters were raised in a dysfunctional family with a penchant for ugly predicaments. Each has endured her share of hardship and misery. Past resentments bubble to the surface as the sisters are forced to deal with assorted relatives and past relationships while coping with Babe’s latest incident. Each sister is forced to face the consequences of the ‘crimes of the heart’ she has committed.

Liquor Licences: Stuck on a power trip, thinks they know all about building codes and regulations, but really just makes things difficult.

Critic (Male): Normally does pieces for the community sports section of the paper. Thinks by reviewing a couple of fringe shows he can get freebies and pick up women.

Bag person: Uses the hub as a resting place. Convinced the spirit world is communicating with them.

Belle / Brent: From Arts Initiative Australia. Regulates all the funding and grants for the fringe venue. 

Alison / Alistair: Performs on the fringe circuit ( Australia and Edinburgh) but can’t really afford to pay for their venue hire. Full of “great” ideas.

Simone / Simon: Alison’s sibling. Doubles as her producer. Inept.
