Based on Ms. McCullers’ novel and two movie adaptations, this is the story of a young awkward outcast, overly ambitious in all she does, finding her way as her family undergoes deep changes. A feminine and Southern story, akin to Catcher in the Rye. We can all relate to that feeling and need to belong-- as the member of something.

Creative Team

  • Written by Carson McCullers

  • Directed by Eric Schmiedl 

Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

There aren’t many opportunities to see McCullers’ work on the stage and they are never to be missed.
