The Hatbox Theatre brings 'Tru' to the stage in Concord this weekend. Tru is a one-man play that tells the story of one of the most prolific writers of the 20th Century. This production is adapted from the words and works of Truman Capote, and takes place in the writer's New York City apartment at Christmas, 1975. Two-time NH Theatre Award winner Ray Dudley provides a once-in-a-lifetime riveting tour de force performance. The show also received a 1990 Drama Desk Award winner for Outstanding One-person show. Tru takes place in Capote's New York City apartment at Christmas, 1975. Alone and hurting after being spurned by his closest friends, Capote soothes himself with pills, alcohol, and candy while musing about his checkered life and career. Truman's life through his words spans comedy and tragedy, laughter and tears, and the quiet whimpers of his inner torment. The play opens up the book on Capote by providing a poignant biographical sketch of a deeply troubled man who takes the audience through his successes and failures, love's gained and love's lost, all the while showcasing his unique flair for the dramatic. At times light-hearted and funny, at times dark and irreverent the show will move audiences to all ends of the emotional spectrum. Tickets are $12-$17.
