John Weltman and director Carol McManus bring Truman Capote to life in this one-man tour de force. Originally planned as a summer black box production, we will present five performances on the Main Stage soon after part 2 of phase 3 of the MASS.Gov reopening plan has been announced. Dates to be announced as soon as we can.
Adapted from the words and works of Truman Capote, Tru takes place in the writer's New York City apartment during the week before Christmas 1975. An excerpt from Capote's infamous novel Answered Prayers has recently been published in Esquire and the author's friends, recognizing the characters as thinly veiled versions of themselves, have turned their back on the man they once considered a close confidant. Alone and hurting, Capote soothes himself with pills, alcohol, and chocolate truffles while musing about his checkered life and career.
On the Main Stage
Dates TBA... Stay tuned!
