Railway Theater Presents
Two heartwarming journeys into the foibles of the holiday season are adapted for the stage when Underground Railway Theater presents a double bill of Grace Paley's "The Loudest Voice" and Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory" -- both adapted and directed by Wesley Savick. These whimsical holiday tales will play at Central Square Theater November 19 - December 27.
Joyful and rich with humor, both stories are set in the 1930s and told from the point of view of children – one a girl from the Bronx, the other a boy from Alabama.
Grace Paley’s "The Loudest Voice" takes audiences to a Russian Jewish immigrant school where, “without shame,” gentile teachers annually stage the Nativity. Shirley, a bright young Jewish girl is asked to narrate the play due to her loud clear voice.
In "A Christmas Memory," Truman Capote recalls
his close friendship with another social outcast, his wildly eccentric
older cousin, and their holiday tradition of making fruitcakes. This nostalgic
tale of love and a shared understanding evokes the simple joys and sorrows
of the holidays.
For tickets, stop by the Central Square Theatre box office at 450 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, call 866-811-4111 or visit www.centralsquaretheater.org.
