Gangly, outspoken 12-year-old Frankie Addams yearns to belong to the “we of me,” and in a Southern kitchen, pours her heart out to the family cook, Berenice. One of the most beautiful plays ever written about loneliness and love.

Avid listener on my daily commute!
...by Ruby Dee and a young Jena Malone. This was my second time listening, but it won't be my last. Highly, highly recommended for all mature audiences. Darker themes of violence, racial injustice, and tragedy striking both young and old join with more general themes of love, loss and loneliness to make this an unsuitable listen for kids.
The story is heart rending,not a word out of place McCullers; beautifully realised by the readers for all characters but especially Frankie, Berenice( Ruby Dee) & John Henry.
