BWW Reviews: MEMBER OF THE WEDDING Has Reception on Theatre Memphis' Next StageBWW Reviews: MEMBER OF THE WEDDING Has Reception on Theatre Memphis' Next Stage

In both plays, the main characters are removed from an outside, 'normal' world; and in both plays, there are characters who wish to be seen by others as normal.
