REVIVAL OF THE BELOVED PLAY
by Carson McCullers
directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch

Gaye Taylor Upchurch directs this revival of Carson McCullers‘ beloved play.  On the eve of a family wedding in 1945, housekeeper Berenice Sadie Brown (Roslyn Ruff) can’t calm the nerves of her 12-year-old charge, Frankie (Tavi Gevinson).  Berenice has raised Frankie and her cousin John Henry (Logan Schuyler Smith) as though they are her own children.  But as their companion, playfellow, and mother figure, Berenice is suddenly struggling to protect them from the harsh, racially motivated injustices lurking just outside their Southern home.  This cherished American work explores the complicated reality of a thoughtful and hard-working woman caught between two worlds.

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
