The Play’s The Thing
Set in the American South of the 1940s, this coming-of-age story about a lonely, over-imaginative twelve-year old girl and the black cook to whom she pours out her heart is one of the most poignant plays ever written about loneliness, longing and love. Winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Prize for Best American Play of 1950.
Author: Carson McCullers
Cast: Ruby Dee, Jena Malone, Lawrence Pressman, Tegan West
