A Petaluma Tradition! Kick off your holiday season with Capote and Thomas.

Dylan Thomas’s prose poem, A Child’s Christmas in Wales, is a lush description of a Welsh Christmas. It is both a beautiful and poignant work. “Bring out the tall tales now that we told by the fire as the gaslight bubbled like a diver. . . .”

Then, enjoy this delightful interpretation of Truman Capote’s early work. In his 1956 story, A Christmas Memory, Capote remembers when he was 10 years old and it was “fruitcake weather.” His holiday rituals are painted with loving and nostalgic strokes, becoming a truly memorable experience for all ages.

Presented by Petaluma Readers Theatre.
