Steel Magnolias The Play
Written in the background of Louisiana and its Northwest region, the play beautifully exhibits the relations of a group of women from South living there and their bonding with each other. The credit of writing this great play goes to Robert Harling, who, according to his own account, was inspired to write the play after he experienced the death of his sister. The play primarily talks about the female characters, who are tough as steel when it comes to bearing the hardships of life, but at the same time never lose their delicate touch like magnolias.
The focus of the play remains a beauty parlor in Lousiana that is owned by Truvy, who is also one of the leading characters in the play, as well as the regular customers at the parlor. The story primarily revolves around a lady named Shelby, who is a type I diabetic.

There are several other smaller side stories that continue through the play involving other customers at the parlor, like Clairee, Oulser, Truvy and Annelle.
Clairee and Oulser get to be friends despite having quite different personalities, and the play takes twists and turns through its course as their relationship gets stronger.
