Designing Women


by Linda Bloodworth Thomason
Directed by Heidi McKerley

Fashionable and fierce, the ladies of the smash-hit comedy series Designing Women are now live onstage at Horizon in this hilarious and timely new comedy set in Atlanta in fall 2020, Designing Women – 2020: The Big Split. Presidents and pandemics are the hot conversation points, and Julia and her partners at Sugarbaker’s interior design firm are now tackling 21st century challenges with wit, pluck, and style. The house of Sugarbaker may be divided this election season, but these Southern, smart, and sassy designing women prove that nothing truly unites us like laughter. 

This new take on Designing Women is “entertaining and full of social commentary” (Sarah Komar, The Arkansas Traveler). Creator of the iconic TV series, playwright Linda Bloodworth Thomason, moves the story forward to today. With characters from the series on stage along with new staff and love interests, audiences will connect and laugh whether they are long-time fans or meeting these designing women for the first time.
