Dramatists Play Service, 1988 - 82 ページ
THE STORY: The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Review: Steel Magnoliasユーザー レビュー - Nicolas - Goodreads
A fun small-cast play with dynamic characters. The clever dialogue and fast-paced scenes made it an enjoyable read. I did feel at times that characters seemed a bit interchangeable, but that can fixed with direction. It reminded a bit of Beth Henley's superior play Crimes of the Heart. レビュー全文を読む
Review: Steel Magnoliasユーザー レビュー - Elizabeth - Goodreads
This play was very good. I would love to see it on stage, and perhaps be in it. Kind of hard to get attached to any character since it was script format, but I almost just like reading dialogue. Too much description bores me. レビュー全文を読む
