PETERBOROUGH — The Peterborough Players begin their 2018 summer season Wednesday, June 20, with the one-man show “Tru: From the Words and Works of Truman Capote.”

One of the most celebrated writers of the 20th century, Capote was also one of its most complex personalities. The wild success of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood” made him a transcendent literary star and gave him entrée to New York’s social elite… until he decided to write about them.

“Tru” is a one-man play adapted from his words and works and takes place in the writer’s New York City apartment at Christmas, 1975. Starring Players regular Kraig Swartz and directed by Players Artistic Director Gus Kaikkonen, “Tru,” by Jay Presson Allen,” was the winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding One-Person Show. Rated PG-13, it will run through July 1 at the Hadley Road theater. For show times, visit or call 924-7585. Tickets are $42.
