Butt Drama Circle, Ballybofey present ‘Steel Magnolias’ by Robert Harling


Hilarious and touching, the play of six women is set in a beauty parlour in Louisiana. Through four scenes spanning three years the staff and customers engage in small-town gossip but we see a deep strength and purposefulness emerge when Shelby – a diabetic – dies following a kidney transplant operation.
