Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, the play is filled with humanity and humor as it tells the story of three eccentric sisters - Babe played by Gina Clarke, Lenny played by Lisa Tarlton and Meg played by Melody Goodwin and their cousin Chick played by Lindsay Melton. Their small Southern town is rocked by scandal when Babe shoots her abusive husband. Humor and pathos abound as the sisters unite with the help of a young lawyer, played by Jeff Jazzy Johnson, to keep Babe out of jail. When Meg's high school sweetheart Doc Porter played by Jason Clarke, shows up, it brings the past to their doorsteps as the sisters try to overcome their family's painful past.
