In association with Boone Dog Productions, Metro Theatre celebrates the return of live theatre by co-presenting playwright Robert Harling’s warm and witty Steel Magnolias from September 25 – October 10, 2021. Featuring an all-female collective of Vancouver-based professional performers, this beloved story of camaraderie and fierce loyalty epitomizes Southern charm and unwavering strength in the face of triumphs and tragedies.
“Steel Magnolias is a powerful story about the healing nature of friendship — a poignant and timely message for those who are still feeling the costly effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.” says actor and co-producer Lalainia Lindbjerg, who plays the matriarchal role of M’Lynn.
“The women in this play reflect those women in our society that we all admire. Strong, brave, loving, flawed. Their journey is the journey of life; inspiring in it’s friendship, its humour and ultimately its enormous heart.” – Shel Piercy, Director
Please visit the STEEL MAGNOLIAS webpage for the press release, photos and more information about the production.
