A SPECIAL HOLIDAY CLASSIC NIGHT READING
TRUMAN CAPOTE’S THE THANKSGIVING VISITOR
DYLAN THOMAS’ A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES.
DECEMBER 12 AND 13 AT 8:00 PM
AND DECEMBER 14 AT 3:00 PM.
As Theatre Artists Workshop continues its 32nd season, in the spirit of being thankful to our audiences, TAW presents the Truman Capote classic The Thanksgiving Visitor. And, as a special treat, Kier Dullea, our founding member, will be reading A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas.
Directed by Mark Graham (Stratford, CT), the show will be performed as a Classic Night concert reading on Friday, December 12 (8pm), Saturday, December 13 (8pm), and Sunday, December 14 (3pm).
The cast of The Thanksgiving Visitor will be familiar to audiences who’ve seen many great TAW productions through the years: Kristin Graham (Stratford, CT), Richard Leonard (Cos Cob, CT), Jo Anne Parady (Southport, CT ), Katie Sparer (Stratford, CT), Allan Zeller (Milford, CT).
In Truman Capote’s The Thanksgiving Visitor the younger and older Truman recount memories of times with their beloved cousin, Miss Sook, as they face an unwelcome visitor for Thanksgiving. Full of warmth, friendship, and generosity, the play allows audience members to leave with an understanding of the true value of holiday memories.
Keir Dullea (Fairfield, CT), best known for his work in 2001: A Space Odyssey and its sequel 2010: The Year We Make Contact, tops off the evening’s entertainment with a reading of A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas. The poem began as a radio piece and has since been adapted for stage, film and animation. A Child’s Christmas in Wales finds its way back to its original incarnation through the voice of our founding member, Kier Dullea.
