Crimes of the Heart Closes the 2009-10 Season with a Bang

Playwright Beth Henley, center, with Honorary Producers Jean and Tim Weiss.

The audience didn’t actually see Babe shoot her husband (because she didn’t like his looks); nor did they hear the gunshot. But it gave impetus to the action in Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize winning Crimes of the Heart. SCR’s production boasted a stellar cast, two generous honorary producers and was graced by the presence of the playwright.

After the thunderous standing ovation, First Nighters headed for Ela’s Terrance for the season’s final Cast Party, where they joined the playwright, director and all the artists for a smashing event, with food, drinks and decor straight out of the Old South, also the home of Jean Weiss, who said, “I was not only transported back to my roots but to my parents’ kitchen! I actually felt like I personally knew the characters as soon as they began their dialogue.”

Read all about the party and see the glittering photos.
