Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory
Thursday, December 19th | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Back by popular demand, our holiday Redlands Forum will once again host a special production of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory. Performed by Chris Beach and Sally Norton, the play is a special holiday event for the whole family with live music, sound effects, and heartfelt storytelling. This is the third year A Christmas Memory will be performed as part of the Redlands Forum Series.
A Christmas Memory is Capote's masterful short memoir. Set in rural Alabama during the Depression, it recalls Capote's unique childhood friendship with his elder cousin Miss Sook Faulk. The unlikely pair would scrape together pennies and bake fruitcakes to create presents they could mail to acquaintances around the world. The memory of that friendship—depicted in this live reader's performance—celebrates the power of love between generations and the spirit of giving.
