Join Running With Scissors as they travel back in time to the Civil War, to the crumbling, dilapidated mansion that houses the French Finishing School for Little Confederate Women. Once a font of gentility and etiquette, it’s now little more than a reform school, chock-full of the bawdiest, cattiest, downright orneriest gals (Kyle Daigrepont, Lisa Picone, Dorian Rush) the South has ever seen, lorded over by spinster sisters Flossie and Fannie French (Brian Peterson, Yvette Hargis)!
Into their midst stumbles a seemingly innocent Union soldier (Jack Long), wounded at a nearby battle. He’s taken in and nursed, but what will all those women do with him when he’s well enough to walk again? Will he make it out alive? Will they? HELL’S BELLES is Southern Gothic at its sassiest.
(Fun fact: HELL’S BELLES was inspired by the 1971 Clint Eastwood film, THE BEGUILED, which was filmed just upriver from New Orleans at Ashland Belle-Helene plantation!)
HELL’S BELLES runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 6pm from June 7 – 23. Tickets are $25 on Fridays and Saturdays, and $20 on Sundays. Reserve yours today by visiting MidCityTheatre.com or calling 504-488-1460.
