This play, originally published in 1989 and revised in 1997, has entered the theatre canon as one of our most
delightful and endearing plays about southern women, and enjoys popularity to this day. Told in "two acts and
forty-five phone calls," Belles visits six southern sisters, who, over the course of an autumn weekend, seek to
bridge the physical and emotional distance between them via the telephone, and in the process come to terms with
their shattered family history. The six Walker sisters all hail from Memphis, but now they are scattered all over
the country. Only Peggy still lives in Memphis, where she cares for Mama. When the play begins, Peggy is phoning
her sisters with the latest about Mama... whether they want to hear it or not!
