Steel Magnolias
BUY TICKETS NOW!
Directed by Christopher Bellis
August 5 – August 22
Steel Magnolias was a play before it was a movie. After its off-Broadway premiere in 1987, playwright Robert Harling wrote the screenplay for the 1989 film starring Olympia Dukakis, Sally Field, Daryl Hannah, Shirley MacLaine, Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts.

Harling based Steel Magnolias on the life of his sister and their experience growing up in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The play is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. The title suggests the “female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel”.

A Christmas Carol
BUY TICKETS NOW!
Directed by Eddie Bennet
December 2 – December 19
Faithful to Dickens’ beautiful language, this adaptation of the beloved Christmas classic tells the heartwarming story of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge. Mr. Scrooge is always cold-hearted, and Christmas is no exception — that is, until the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, comes to warn him about the consequences of living a life of greed and materialism. Over the next three nights, Scrooge is visited by three other spirits who try to convince him that his selfishness will be his downfall. Is this enough to make the selfish old miser change his ways? This production will establish a tradition to be performed each Christmas at The Historic Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse.

By Charles Dickens
