Workshop Theatre brings Mark Dunn's southern-sister tale Belles to life March 6-15. Considered the gold standard of Dunn's plays about southern women, Belles blends family drama and comedy through 45 phone calls between sisters. Belles visits six Southern sisters, who, over the course of an autumn weekend, seek to bridge the physical and emotional distance between them via the telephone, and in the process come to terms with their shattered family history.
The six Walker sisters all hail from Memphis, but now they are scattered all over the country. Only Peggy still lives in Memphis, where she cares for Mama. When the play begins, Peggy is phoning her sisters with the latest about Mama... whether they want to hear it or not!
Robin Gottlieb directs this talented cast of women. The Belles ensemble cast features Allison Allgood, Krista Forster, Raia Hirsch, Zsuzsa Manna, Katie Mixon, and Kira Nessel.
