Event description

Description

Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch and Diabetes Youth Auckland present the play Steel Magnolias. Company Theatre have very kindly supported us by allowing us to host Wednesday 28th August as a fundraiser evening. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the original Steel Magnolias movie release.

The play and movie were written by Robert Harling, who based the story around the real life events of his sister, Susan Harling (Shelby in the play), who died in 1985 due to complications of Type 1 Diabetes.

The play manages to be both moving and funny and was born of Robert Harling's desire to celebrate the strong women who comprised and supported his family. The dialogue is quick and witty. At the same time, the play is an interesting look at how far diabetes treatment has progressed.
