The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Tmvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, Miss Clairee, and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on their underlying strength and love.
