Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre

npn crimesNov. 8 – 24
Crimes of the Heart 
Lakewood Theatre Company

2211 Old Hickory Blvd
Old Hickory, TN 37138

The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.

Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future—but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.

Dad says, “He’s just a boy!” And Mama’s on a quest for answers. Is Jesse dysfunctional, or just different? Don’t we all have ADD, to some degree? She consults a psychologist, a homeopath, a neuropsychologist, and an environmental physician. She talks to neighbors, whose kids have their own diagnoses. A psychiatrist prescribes Ritalin for Jesse, but surely a pill can’t solve all of his problems. Throughout, Jesse is an offstage voice, becoming louder and angrier, but he is in danger of fading away. And his parents’ marriage is in peril. Everyone is distracted, even the actors—they’re breaking character! A hilarious, provocative, and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma: Are we so tuned into our 24/7 info-rich world that we’ve tuned out what really matters?

Cynthia tries desperately to nurse the dead animal back to life, as Ken fights for his first weekend alone with his wife in 25 years. As their lifeless, bloody new pet takes over their lives, Ken and Cynthia will either rekindle their love or kill each other. DEER is a grisly, pitch-black comedy about normal people who snap. “I feel fairly confident in saying that Nashville hasn’t seen anything like this play before,” said Stephanie Houghton, director of the play. “DEER is a perceptive, layered and very funny look at the pent-up emotions that can develop in long-term relationships. Don’t we all occasionally feel the urge to take a dead deer home with us and treat it like a child?”
