Steel Magnolias is a stage play by American writer Robert Harling, based on his experience with his sister's death. The play is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana
The 1980s were the heyday of female-centred comedy-drama in Hollywood. Offering a palatable triumph of female solidarity in the face of tragedy, Robert Harling’s stage play Steel Magnolias became one of the most famous vehicles for this cinematic trend.
The play is set in the fictional small town of Chinquapin, Louisiana, in a beauty parlour owned by the vivacious Truvy (Karen Ardiff), who gathers an exclusive group of locals together for Saturday morning salon sessions to trade gossip and recipes.
