Amana – Tru, a dramatic comedy about the life of famed author Truman Capote by Jay Presson Allen, opens on The Old Creamery Theatre’s Studio Stage Dec. 5.
Truman Capote, or Tru to his friends, was a flamboyant writer who stood out from the crowd. His ability to weave truth with fiction led to some of his greatest works such as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood.” This play gives a glimpse of the man behind the pen, the socially elite and at times outcast Tru, whose impact on literature still runs deep.
Featuring Jeff Haffner of Cleveland, Ohio, Tru is directed by Jackie McCall of Marengo and runs through Dec. 22 on The Old Creamery’s Studio Stage in Middle Amana. Tickets are $27.50 for adults and $18 for students. Tru is sponsored by The Gethmann Organizations with KMRY as the media sponsor and is rated Theatre R.
