How do you solve a problem like that child Shelby?! You donít. A tender, funny, sad, funny play about the family tug of war between mother (Mílynn) and daughter (Shelby). And their friends who all come to the same beauty parlor where life and its issues get discussed and dissected in a very Southern and ladylike way. A perennial favorite of the American stage!

"...Playwright Robert Harling based the STEEL MAGNOLIAS story on his experience with the death of his diabetic sister. As her best friend and closest sibling, Harling found it difficult to cope with losing her, and his friends advised him to write about his feelings as a coping method. What began as a short story then evolved into a full-length play due to the complexity of the relationships and emotions that existed among the female characters who are "as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel" who utilize humor and lighthearted conversations to cope with the seriousness of life's underlying situations."
