Publisher's Summary

This Pulitzer Prize-winner is a deeply touching and funny play about three eccentric sisters from a small Southern town rocked by scandal when Babe, the youngest, shoots her husband. Humor and pathos abound as the sisters unite with an intense young lawyer to save Babe from a murder charge, and overcome their family’s painful past. A BBC co-production.

It's clear why this is a Pulitzer-winning story

I downloaded this in anticipation of an audition for the same show. I'd never read it before, and never saw the film, so I really didn't know much of what it was about.

The story itself is very compelling, and I found myself wrapped up in the Magrath sisters' story. I found myself empathizing with Lenny, hating Meg, and becoming increasingly frustrated with Babe, but ultimately rooting for all of them.

Definitely a good listen.

I love this story

The narrators were awful. I guess it's had to beat Jessica Lange and Sissy Spacek.
