Frankly Frankie Productions Presents 'Tru' 

Frankly Frankie Productions presents 'Tru,' a one-act play based on the life of Truman Capote

As author and raconteur Truman Capote once said, “Life is a moderately good play with a badly written third act.” While Capote was unscrupulously true in his writing, he wasn’t always so intellectually honest with his own life, which played out better—or more interesting, at least—than could be called “moderately good.”

The same goes for the 1989 one-man play Tru, by Jay Presson Allen, which puts Capote in the spotlight, examining the writer’s self-absorption and how it informed his reaction to the critical reception of his work.

Presented by Frankly Frankie Productions, this staging of Tru stars Adam Toothaker and is directed by Anne McDonald.
