Steel Magnolias, famously filmed in the 1980s with Dolly Parton and Shirley Maclaine, is based on real events and explores the bond which develops among a group of women.

There is much humour in then play, as author Robert Harling set out to show how humour and lighthearted banter can enable folk to cope with difficult situations. As the title suggests the women can be as delicate as flowers and as tough as steel.

Steel Magnolias is being presented in Clarkston Hall on Friday, April 20 at 7.30pm and Saturday, April 21 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm

Tickets are £12 and can be purchased by phoning 07518 201756, emailing [email protected] or by visiting
