"I'm an alcoholic. I'm a drug addict. I'm homosexual. I'm a genius." Thus Truman Capote, the man who sketched ruthless killers in In Cold Blood and exquisite socialites in Breakfast at Tiffany's, once famously described himself. These four facets of his most remarkable personality -- not to mention numerous others -- are explored in Tru, a one-man show adapted from the author's own words and work. It's 1975, a week before Christmas, and Capote is holed up in his Manhattan apartment, weathering the social storm brought on by the publication of an excerpt of his upcoming novel, the scandalous Answered Prayers. Aided by copious amounts of pills, vodka, cocaine and chocolate truffles, one of America's greatest literary figures muses about his checkered life and career in this two-act monologue starring Bill Tindall. Arrive early for the hors d'oeuvres and wine served before this special performance at Morgan Hill Community Playhouse.
