The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.
Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future-but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.

Join a Dungeness River Center naturalist to see and hear the birds of the riparian forest by the beautiful Dungeness River. The flashy birds of summer are the goal: warblers, vireos, tanagers, grosbeaks, flycatchers, and others that are only here for a few brief months before they return to their Central and South American wintering haunts. Bring binoculars, bird books, and shoes suitable for walking on the Olympic Discovery trial.
Enjoy the Sequim lavender fields in bloom and enhance your visit as you discover new hidden gems - eight award winning artisan wineries on the scenic North Olympic Peninsula. Explore more hidden back roads and lush valleys as you discover some of the finest small family-run wineries in Washington State. Since most produce less than 2,000 cases of wine a year, many of the wines are in very limited production and are challenging to find outside of the communities where they are made. Indulge in the pleasure of sharing these rare wines of Washington State with your friends and family. The Olympic Peninsula Wineries invite visitors to wind their way through beautiful fields of lavender en route to tasting some of the region's best handcrafted wines during the annual Sequim Lavender. Eight artisan wineries located in Port Townsend, Chimacum and Port Angeles will pour new and current releases in celebration of the region's agricultural heritage. Doors will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, Friday-Sunday.
While children are allowed in the tasting rooms, you must be 21 or over to participate in wine tasting.
Olympic Cellars Winery will release the only locally made Lavender infused wine for the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. Purple Haze Farm provided the organic culinary lavender, Melissa, a delicately scented variety which is the number one choice for chefs in the area. And the lavender was a perfect match for the equally delicate and floral notes of the Müller-Thurgau wine. The wine is available for purchase at Olympic Cellars and will also be poured at Purple Haze Farm. The winery will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in July and August.
Wine and Beer Garden
Be sure and visit us at the Wine & Beer Garden at Lavender in the Park during the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. A selection of two wines from each winery will be available for tasting, by the glass or to purchase by the bottle.
