Lenny, the eldest of the sisters, is seeking marriage, even though she's 30 and facing fewer options. Meg, meanwhile, attempts to find direction following a singing career that went nowhere. Also, Babe, has just gotten out on bail after initially being jailed for shooting her husband.
The show's McGrath sisters include Mera Kathryn Corlett as Lenny McGrath, Madison Dunaway as Meg McGrath, and Laura Obenauf as Babe Botrelle. Other cast members include Raquel Cecil as Chick Boyle, Brantley Dunaway as Doc Porter, and Neil Brewer as Barnette Lloyd.
Following Crimes of the Heart, Bunbury Theatre and Amanda Rountree will present The Good, The Bad, and The Monkey, which deals with Routree's comedic look on love, relationships, and dating. That show will occur on April 29 and 30. More information on this show, as well as Bunbury's production of The Foreigner, can be found at the Bunbury website.
