ACT Productions concludes summer perfomances of prize winning comedy

Join ACT Productions as they present their closing performances of Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize winning dark comedy, “Crimes of the Heart” on Friday and Saturday, July 18-19 at 8 p.m. at the SKIT studio, 507 Ellis Avenue in Maryville.

From its humble beginning at the Actor’s Theatre of Louisville, to the Broadway stage, to a major motion picture (starring Diane Keaton, Sissy Spacek, and Jessica Lange), “Crimes of the Heart” became a play that ‘restored one’s faith in our theatre (NY Magazine).

Directed by Gregg Roberts, the play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions.

Tackling the roles of the dysfunctional siblings are Lisa Hatmaker as Meg, Gayle Greene as Lenny and Maryville’s own Lea McMahan as Babe.

Rounding out the cast are Laura Champagny, Matt Lawson and Gregg Roberts as Chick, Barnette and Doc respectively.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased online by visiting or by calling 865-621-0216. They will also be available for $12 at the door just prior to the performances. Seating is limited.
