based on Truman Capote’s “The Thanksgiving Visitor” and “A Christmas Memory”

with Sets by Marc Swanson, Costumes by Michelle Rogers, Sound by Carmen Borgia
The cast features Christopher McIntyre as Buddy, Steven Patterson as Truman, Nancy Rothman as Miss Sook Falk, and the chameleonic Andrew Joffe and Louise Pillai as everyone else!
When his parents’ marriage dissolved, the young Truman Capote was left in the care of distant relatives in Monroeville, Alabama (which also served as the model for Maycomb in his childhood friend Harper Lee’s novel “To Kill a Mockingbird”). There, he formed an unbreakable friendship with the youngest of his elderly cousins, a shy, childlike spinster he called “Sook”. The relationship between these two ‘outcasts’ forms the basis for the stories which make up “Holiday Memories,” a chronicle of growing up ‘different’ in the deep South during the depths of the Great Depression and an ode to the simple joys of love shared. A holiday treat the entire family can enjoy together, the play is a terrific alternative to more traditional seasonal fare.
