Nothing brings a family together like murder. Such are the circumstances that kick-start Crimes of the Heart, the Pulitzer-winning dark comedy about the quirky Magrath sisters and the sordid deeds they must reconcile. Holed up at their grandfather's house in Mississippi, the sisters have a knack for dysfunction, with the latest fiasco involving youngest sister Babe's shooting of her abusive husband. Meanwhile, eldest sister Lenny is becoming more of an old maid all the time, and middle sister Meg has suffered a nervous breakdown after seeing her dreams of a singing career dashed. More than 30 years after Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange and Sissy Spacek starred in an acclaimed film adaptation, this Allen's Community Theatre production of Crimes of the Heart proves that this tale of sisterhood in all its dimensions is as potent, touching and hilarious as ever.
