Steel Magnolias

Set in the Southern United States in the 1980s, it is a story of six women spanning three generations, coping with the trials and tribulations of their lives and sharing their worlds when they meet weekly in Truvy’s salon to have their hair done.

The play begins with the impending celebration of Shelby’s marriage and ends in a tragedy three years later.

However, it’s the resilience and forthright Southern pride of these women that will capture audience’s imagination. You will laugh and cry with them, feeling their emotions as the story unfolds.

The production is directed by Ean Burgon, a regular performer and director for the Company who recently won Best Actor at the Greater Manchester Drama Festival Awards 2016.

The success of Lyceum Theatre Oldham continues this season, with many shows selling out, often before the production even opens.

The basement theatre in the centre of Oldham is currently planning a refurbishment of Front of House areas, following the auditorium refurbishment in summer 2015.

Lyceum Theatre Oldham presents ‘STEEL MAGNOLIAS’ by Robert Harling from 3 – 11 February 2017 at 7.30pm (no performance Sunday 5 February).

Tickets cost £8 and can be booked online lyceumtheatre.org.uk or by caling the Box Office: 0161 627 1032
