MRH High School Theatre Department Presents "Crimes of the Heart"

Crimes of the Heart posterThe MRH High School’s spring production, “Crimes of the Heart,” runs Thursday through Saturday, March 3-5 at 7:00 p.m. each night. Director Holly Potthoff is planning some fun for this show by creating a “theatre in the round,” with audience members on stage. See production photos here.

“Crimes of the Heart” by Beth Henley won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play. In 1986 it was made into a movie starring Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange and Sissy Spacek, and was nominated for three Academy Awards, including one for Henley for Best Adapted Screenplay. It has been produced countless times at theatres across the country and around the world since its first production, and has quickly become a modern classic.

“Crimes of the Heart” endures not because of its history, but because of its heartwarming appeal. The play centers on three sisters who come together after a tragedy occurs in the family.

Families and community members are encouraged to attend the production and support the arts at MRH.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students, and are available at the door the night of the production starting at 6:15pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.
