The Member of the Wedding

When: Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 29 2018

Thirteen is a dangerous age for you, Frankie. You've far outgrown the smaller "left-over" kids. The older ones, who tell those "nasty lies" about what married folks do together, don't want you around. Your older brother, Jarvis, has his fiancée, the beautiful Janice, and they'll be married in two days' time. Even Berenice, the cook and nanny, has her beau, T.T. But you? You're precocious, bright, and lonesome enough to realize you have no one. Already, you somehow know a boyfriend's not the answer for you. This disturbs you even more. Right now, you're thinking Jarvis and Janice will be your grounding group—"the 'we' of me," you've started calling them—and that they're somehow going to take you away with them when they marry. Frankie, you're about to get hurt. And we're not going to be able to look away when you do. Star Pocket Theatre's inaugural production stars Mackie Raymond in the title role of Carson McCullers's classic 1950 drama. —Byron Woods
