    Presented by at Arsenal Center for the Arts Charles Mosesian Theater

    December 9 - December 23, 2012



    by Truman Capote
    staged version by Russell Vandenbroucke

    This heartfelt drama combines Truman Capote’s short stories “The Thanksgiving Visitor” and “A Christmas Memory.” Based on his childhood in mid-Depression, deep south of Alabama country life, Capote finds poetry in the everyday activities leading up to Christmas. Eight-year-old Buddy and his older eccentric cousin Miss Sook embark on their annual pre-holiday rituals of making handmade ornaments, baking treats, and searching for the perfect Christmas tree. Called “an evening of fond reminiscences” by The Chicago Tribune, these American tales reveal tender moments of friendship, fruitcakes, and the joy of giving.
