By Truman Capote/ Play adapted by Russell Vandenbroucke. An American treasure, based on two short stories from Truman Capote, “The Thanksgiving Visitor” and “A Christmas Memory,” HOLIDAY MEMORIES is a charming, heartwarming remembrance of a young man and his family. A nostalgic holiday tale laced with lyricism, wit and gentle charm. Set in Depression-era rural Alabama, this play of evocative memories follows Buddy (young Truman Capote) and his elderly cousin (Miss Sook) as they deal with the school bully, make fruitcake for Eleanor Roosevelt, cut down the perfect Christmas tree, and share a very special relationship. “…simply wonderful, a warm, funny and lancingly poignant vignette of a child and a faded eccentric creating a private island of life and love in a small patch of Dixie some years ago.” -NY Times “It is the intimate detail with which Capote recreates the character of his friend that lifts this story out of the realm of anecdote and into the realm of art.” - - Powells
