  • "A young girl living in a small Georgia town, highly strung and confused, becomes obsessed with sharing the honeymoon of her brother and his bride. Frankie Addams is caught between adolescence and childhood, fighting both in McCullers' play based on her novel, one of the most deeply affecting works of 'Southern Gothic' exploring the mystery of life, its pain and loneliness. McCullers' literate dialogue in three acts, sad, lyrical and full of wit, is brought to life by the three principals. Julie Harris, playing a character half her age, gives an intense portrayal of bravado concealing insecurity ('all people belong to "we" except me'). Ethel Waters is the sympathetic black cook, Frankie's surrogate mother. De Wilde is Frankie's frail, six-year-old playmate."@en
