Petaluma Readers Theatre: Truman Capote and Dylan Thomas Holiday Readings
Petaluma Readers Theatre presents Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory” with “A Child’s Christmas In Wales” by Dylan Thomas. Two holiday classics from two extraordinary authors. Enjoy an evening of warm and wonderful stories that reflect the magic of Christmases past.
Dylan Thomas's prose poem, A Child's Christmas in Wales, is a lush description of a Welsh Christmas. It is both a beautiful and poignant work. "Bring out the tall tales now that we told by the fire as the gaslight bubbled like a diver. . . ."
Then, enjoy this delightful interpretation of Truman Capote's early work. In his 1956 story, A Christmas Memory, Capote remembers when he was 10 years old and it was "fruitcake weather." His holiday rituals are painted with loving and nostalgic strokes, becoming a truly memorable experience for all ages.
