Sarah Merkey directs this Beth Henley play, with performances set for December 1-2, 8-10, and 15-17. In the Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy, three eccentric Southern sisters come together after one shoots her husband, exposing their unique quirks, longings, and regrets as each comes to terms with the consequences of her own “crime of the heart.”

Merkey, who holds a theatre degree from Nazareth College of Rochester, has been an active Curtain Player volunteer for several seasons. Sarah earlier this year played the role of Sandra in Trevor, and in 2015 directed Pack of Lies and stage managed It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play.
