"and Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens"

"and Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens..." written by Tennessee Williams in 1955, was ahead of its time.
Transgender, Aging, Homophobia, and Survival are all themes in this poetic, at times, brutal play.
The script was not produced in Williams' lifetime, due to his blatant treatment of a subject matter that was not spoken of in the decades before now.
The result is a powerful punch of a play, performed and directed by four of Indy's finest talents.

Failure: A Love Story

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead -- expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.

Steel Magnolias

Eventually, when Shelby dies from complications related to her diabetes, M'Lynn, her mother, has to deal with life's most difficult challenge: the loss of one's child.
