Play Synopsis: The Magrath sisters have gathered in their Mississippi hometown to await news of their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister is back after a failed singing career; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband. Their troubles, grave and yet hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while falling in love with her.

Character Descriptions:
Lenny Magrath -- (about 35 to 48 ish) oldest sister, or seems to be….has been mother to the other girls. You can tell she has lived alone for quite a while..quiet, shy and some nervous anxiety, a spinster type, off in her own world most of the time but likes to be in control of things. Never married, should be plain but not unattractive.

Meg Magrath -- around same age, can be older…dresses to attract men, but worn and haggard even though pretty…like a wanna-be movie star but past her prime. Can be argumentative and start fights with sisters when pushed….flirty with men…hair should be blonde or dirty blonde.

Babe Magrath -- (can be in late 20’s---) the youngest and most nieve and vulnerable of the sisters, is accused of murder and tries to kill herself in comical ways….should be attractive, cute and in need of attention.

Doc Porter -- ( can be 40’s--) Meg’s old boyfriend..still carries a torch for her, quiet and reserved but sure of self, is curious to see Meg again.

Chick Boyle -- cousin to girls, neighbor (around same age late 30’s-40---) very nosey, outgoing, pushy, family function organizer type. Married, probably 3 kids or so, busybody.

Barnett Lloyd -- Babe’s lawyer, new to the profession-green around the edges, younger-like Babe and is attracted to her.

Carrollwood Players is located at 4333 Gunn Highway, Tampa, FL.
