Note: This delicate play celebrates Truman Capote's friendship with Sook, an elderly family relation. It takes place during his childhood years in Alabama and is broken into two parts--"The Thanksgiving Visitor" and "A Christmas Memory". Because of the splendidly evocative language, we chose to do this production with the simplest elements possible. In the photo above we see a good example of this with the Thanksgiving dinner which was done with only dining chairs and no table.
