The Four Sisters of Bakersfield
by Martha Patterson
A seriocomedy in the vein of Robert Harling’s “Steel Magnolias,” this is a play about four sisters coping after their mother’s suicide. Katherine, the oldest, is the “sexy” one who always did what she wanted. Sarah, the kooky, neurotic sister, is divorced and has an 18-year-old son in college. Shelby represents the voice of reason but it is overshadowed by her vanity. Last but not least, sweet Alyssa is the youngest, struggling mostly with issues a young person should not have to struggle with. Suitors come and go, but in the end it is within each other where they find their true strength.
