“Tru”
by Jay Presson Allen
directed by & starring DON STITT as Truman Capote

Adapted from the words and works of Truman Capote, Tru is set in the writer’s New York City apartment the week before Christmas 1975. An excerpt from Capote’s infamous unfinished roman à clef, Answered Prayers, recently has been published in Esquire. Having recognized thinly veiled versions of themselves, Manhattan socialites turn their backs on him. Alone and lonely, Capote—soothing himself with pills, vodka, cocaine, and chocolate truffles—muses about his checkered life and career.

Don Stitt is an American actor and playwright who has been featured in four Broadway musicals, appeared 20 times on the Late Show with David Letterman, and starred in countless commercials. In 2007 he presented his autobiographical solo-piece “The Voices in my Head Have Formed a Choir and Somebody’s Singing Flat!” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
