Opening night for ‘Crimes of the Heart’

The 2013-14 UW-Green Bay Theatre season begins with the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Crimes of the Heart, opening at 7:30 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 17) in the Jean Weidner Theatre. Crimes follows the three Magrath sisters, who have gathered at the family home in Mississippi after the youngest, Babe, shoots her husband in the stomach. Their troubles are grave, yet somehow hilarious, balancing comedy and drama in a way audiences will enjoy, says Associate Prof. John Mariano, director. Performances are Oct. 17-19 and 23-26.
