Outside in the Courtyard At The Unicorn Theatre
Inspired by Truman Capote’s autobiographical short story about his own experiences growing up in depression-era Alabama, the play Holiday Memories recounts a friendship between two wayward souls, a precocious young boy, Buddy, and his adult cousin, Sook. Amongst pine trees, they bake fruitcakes and welcome the coming holiday season, reminding us of the many different forms of families and the importance of our shared humanity.
The barn in Stockbridge will light up and serve as the backdrop for a new outdoor stage for Berkshire Theatre Group. Act 1 and 2 will each run about 30 minutes and in between audiences will be invited indoors for warm drinks and seasonal treats. The barn will not only provide the setting, but will also allow a safe environment for distancing and ventilation during these challenging days. This event promises to provide its own evening for a holiday memory for all. Please bundle up and join us!
