James Cady has directed stunning productions of plays by Eugene O’Neill, Arthur Miller, and most recently his own vision of “Hamlet”. His next project at The ADOBE Theater is Carson McCullers’ drama, “The Member of the Wedding” (which she adapted from her novella published in 1946), which opens October 24th. Winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1950, McCullers’ touching and poignant play centers around Frankie Addams, a twelve-year-old girl caught between childhood innocence and the throes of adolescence. This coming-of-age play also explores the intrinsically enmeshed lives of whites and blacks in the American South, 1945.
