    November 19 - December 27, 2009


    Tru Grace: Holiday Memoirs

    Underground Railway Theater pairs two heartwarming journeys into the foibles of the holiday season when they present a double bill: Grace Paley's The Loudest Voice and Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory (November 19 - December 27), adapted for the stage and directed by Wesley Savick. Joyful, whimsical, and rich with humor, both are told from the point of view of children – one a girl, one a boy – and set in the ‘30’s – one in the Bronx, one in Alabama. In A Christmas Memory, Truman Capote recalls his close friendship with another social outcast, his wildly eccentric older cousin; they understood each other as no one else could. Grace Paley’s The Loudest Voice takes us to a Russian Jewish immigrant school where “without shame” gentile teachers annually staged the Nativity. The inspired Wesley Savick crafts the perfect holiday alternative with an intergenerational cast, puppetry, music, and fruitcakes.

    *There will be a special schedule for The Loudest Voice and A Christmas Memory: no Wednesday performances and an additional performance on Friday, November 27 at 2 PM. There will be no performances of The Loudest Voice and A Christmas Memory on November 26, December 3 and 17.
