TRU 
By Jay Presson Allen
December 2, 2016 - January 1, 2017
Abandoned by the high society friends who recognize themselves as the characters in a published excerpt from his unflattering, unfinished novel, Capote humorously dishes, ruminates on his life, and self-medicates as a solitary Christmas approaches.

ARCADIA  
By Tom Stoppard
March 31 - April 30, 2017
