University Players presents award-winning comedy

University Players presents Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Crimes of the Heart, November 17 to 20 and 23 to 27, at Essex Hall Theatre.

Director Liza Balkan calls Crimes of the Heart a deeply touching and funny play about three sisters from a small Southern town, reunited after the youngest sister has shot her husband. Over the next 24 hours, the sisters come together in support as they struggle through their relationships with the men in their lives, and attempt to save their reputation by overcoming their family’s painful past.
