Steel Magnolias, is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives come together in a variety of ways. Both humorous and heart-wrenching, all of the action of the play takes place solely on one set — Truvy’s beauty salon, which is part of her house. There are only six characters (all female) who appear onstage; a disc jockey’s voice is also heard during the play. All the other characters who appear in the film version, such as the males in the ladies’ lives, are only referred to in the play’s dialogue.
