Steel Magnolias



“As cosy as cocoa with a shot of bourbon!” (The Times)

The hysterical, heart-warming and iconic play Steel Magnolias is coming to light up Leicester.

Follow the trials and tribulations of six fierce and sassy women as they set the world to rights in their small-town bustling beauty salon. Unwind with a fabulous cast, including Laura Main (Call the Midwife), Lucy Speed (The Archers, The Bill), Diana Vickers (The X-Factor, Dial M For Murder, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice), Caroline Harker (A Touch of Frost), Elizabeth Ayodele and Claire Carpenter as they set up shop in this raucous classic, comedy masterpiece.

Steel Magnolias is the hilarious and heart-warming true story that inspired the hit film starring Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts, beautifully brought to life on stage.

Schedule your appointment now to experience touching moments showing what friendship and laughter really means. It’s a side-splitting night out where all gossip is welcome, and proves that one hair appointment might just change your life.
