Steel Magnolias is a comedy–drama play about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. Written by Robert Harling, based on his experience with his sister's death. The title suggests the "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel".
Truvy Jones – mid-40s; owner of the beauty salon where the action of the play takes place
Annelle Dupuy-Desoto – 19; Truvy’s new assistant, new in town; married but separated from her outlaw husband; she’s naive, serious, full of apprehensions, but she truly loves and cares for the people in her life.
Clairee Belcher – 60s; widow of the former mayor of Chinquapin, Louisiana; she is a true grande dame; very comfortable in her own skin; very wealthy; socially prominent but unpretentious.
Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie – 25; a lovely, independent, adventurous young woman; knows what she wants in life and won’t let anything stop her.
M’Lynn Eatenton – mid 50s; Shelby’s mother; married 30 years with three children, two boys and Shelby; very protective of Shelby but not smothering
Ouiser Boudreaux – 60s; a true character; she’s an eccentric and a curmudgeon; speaks her mind at all costs; she possesses a wicked tongue but a heart of gold.
