The play was written by Robert Harling in 10 days to express his personal experience in dealing with the death of his sister after a kidney transplant brought on by complications with diabetes. It centers around Truvy's local beauty shop and the "regulars" who frequent the shop. It begins on the morning of Shelby's wedding and follows her life and the friendships of these Southern women for the next three years. This community of Southern women come together to share their secrets, fears and love for one another, sometimes while engaging in neighborly gossip. At the same time they provide a crucial support system characterized by humor, even in the darkest moments. When tragedy strikes, it is the familiar comfort of Truvy's salon where they seek the solace and comfort that, ultimately, sees them through.
