Star Pocket Theatre presents their inaugural production. Adapted from Carson McCullers' classic novel, The Member of the Wedding centers on 12-year-old Frankie Addams as she struggles to find her place in a world that seems to constantly exclude her. Ignored by her father and rejected by the local girls, Frankie's only friends are her pesky younger cousin, John Henry West, and the family’s judicious housekeeper, Berenice Sadie Brown. During the weekend when Frankie's brother is set to be married, she fixates her affection on the couple and decides to run away with them. This charming, funny play presents complex issues of race, gender and sexuality in the 20th-century South. The play is directed by Brent Wilson.
