A Fun and Unusual Staging of Capote’s Quirky Tale, “A Christmas Memory”

BELLOWS FALLS — “A Christmas Memory” is a story by Truman Capote set in his early childhood, when he was forced to live with distant cousins, none of whom paid any attention to him, with one exception… a much older cousin. She was also an outsider in the family, a bit strange, and the two of them became fast friends.

The story takes place at Christmastime when they made little fruitcakes for people they liked, including one for the President. The story climaxes when they go with great trepidation to visit Mr. Haha Jones, who is the only person who can supply them with the whiskey they need for the fruitcakes, because it’s Prohibition.

This version is performed by a chorus that supplies narration, sounds, musical interludes, and character voices. A wild time is expected for all, along with a plentiful dose of Christmas spirit.

John Hadden directs his adaptation of this tale along with David Stern and the Wild Goose Players. The cast includes both John and David, as well as Libby McCawley, Jan and Mike Sheehy, Riley Goodemote, Ibby Hopkins, Susan Still, and Morganna Ekkens. Lighting design by Ira Wilner.

This in-the-round hybrid of a staged reading, radio play, and casual theater will be recorded and filmed at Stage 33 Live in Bellows Falls, Vermont, in front of a live studio audience for one performance only on Saturday evening, December 4. Door opens at 7:00, show starts at 7:30.

SEATING IS LIMITED. Suggested per-person $10+ donation for the cast and crew. Advance donations double as a chair reservation in the studio audience, and can be made online through the www.stage33live.com website. Masks are required — note that the cast will not be masked in case this factors into your decision-making.

Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in an intimate setting. No bar or kitchen, the stage is the mission; snacks by donation. More info about the nonprofit, all-volunteer project, and this and other other upcoming events, online at stage33live.com
