Truvy Jones runs a successful beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies in the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment. Along with her anxious and eager assistant, Annelle, Truvy styles the hair of many of the women about town: wealthy widow and former first lady of Chinquapin, Clairee Belcher, local curmudgeon Ouiser Boudreaux ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years), intelligent and compassionate career woman MLynn, and her daughter Shelby, the prettiest girl in town. Shelbys engagement is the talk of the town, but the joy and excitement of her wedding quickly turn to concern as she faces a risky pregnancy and a myriad of health complications. Eventually, when Shelby dies from complications related to her diabetes, MLynn has to deal with the most difficult of lifes challenges: the loss of ones only child. As the women of Chinquapin makes their ways over lifes many hurdles together, they find comfort (and a fair amount of verbal ribbing) in one another. You have no idea how wonderful you are, MLynn tells the ladies at the end of the play. Truvy responds, with a smile, Of course we do.
