A Christmas Memory

Originally published in 1956, this poignant, heart-felt, modern  day classic gently captures Mr. Capote’s richly detailed  memories of his Depression-era, rural Alabama boyhood with  his best friend – an eccentric, 60-something distant cousin  with whom he baked fruitcakes each Christmas. The affecting  simplicity of Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory speaks  even louder today, making us realize just how chaotic our lives  can be if we don’t hold on to some tether of family, love and  tradition.

Written by Truman Capote. Directed by Michael Cooper (December 1-16, 2023).
