4/25/2014-5/11/2014 Main Stage Public Theatre of Kentucky Presents: The Member of the Wedding The Times wrote of this play: “Carson McCullers’ report of a harum-scarum adolescent girl in Georgia is wonderfully—almost painfully—perceptive; and her associated sketches of a Negro mammy and a busy little boy are masterly pieces of writing.” According to the Journal-American, “Something rare and special.” John Mason Brown wrote: “(This) study of the loneliness of an over imaginative young Georgian girl is no ordinary play. It is felt, observed and phrased with exceptional sensitivity. It deals with the torturing dreams, the hungry egotism, and the heartbreak of childhood in a manner as rare as it is welcome…plainly, it is the work of an artist.” Kentucky Main Stage presents “The Member of the Wedding” at the Phoenix Theatre running April 25-May 11.
