The Member of the Wedding was first produced in New York on January 5, 1950 at the Empire Theater by Robert Whitehead, Oliver Rea and Stanley Martineau. The play was directed by Harold Clurman, with sets designed by Lester Polakov.

Out of the poignant loneliness of adolescense and the strange bond between black and white in the American South of the 1940s, Carson McCullers fashioned one of the most beautiful plays ever to appear on the Broadway stage. Already considered a classic of the American Theater, The Member of the Wedding was adapted from her own novel of the same name.

In the role of Berenice Sadie Brown, the black cook who mothers the motherless Frankie Addams, the author has created a figure of classic scale.
