She acknowledged the improvisational design of The Member of the Wedding: I must say I did not realize the proper dimensions of this play, the values of the unseen qualities involved, until the work had taken on its own life.

It is about the lessons a grandchild must learn about their parents and grandparents, and how not everything, or everyone, is what it seems at first glance. The story pulls you in with a great set up for a coming of age fantasy story, and keeps you reading for the resolution of the relationships between characters. It is important to analyze the significance of the grandmother and how she impacts Elsa perception of life and provides momentum to the story. My own words The grandma is a crucial character because she is the mentor that guides Elsa on a path that help her understand the world and helps her cope with her problems such as the her parents Divorce and not being accepted for her unique self by her classmates.

My analytical skills will be applied to part III of Maria Irene Fornes’ Fefu and Her Friends’s from pages 43 to 61 and how the actions and moments beat by beat shape our experience on both, an emotional and intellectual level. This play is a combination of Chekhovian realism combined with Brecht’s approach of giving out information in the title, though she manipulates their style of writing in her own manner. This play was a 1930s occurrence – ‘sufferage’ where women got the right to vote and Fornes’ aim was to make the audience experience the world of females without the influence, in absence of the presence of men. Fornes’ approach to play write, from the very beginning of making a clear political or social agenda collective with that of Julia’s mysterious death at the very end of the play eliminates the possibility of a clear interpretation. In light of these difficulties, I will break down the sequence of events in part III and the connecting events of the parts prior to it, and focus on the relationship between text and performance.
