Underground Railway Theater pairs two heartwarming journeys into the foibles of the holiday season when they present a double bill: Grace Paley's The Loudest Voice and Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory (November 19 - December 27), adapted for the stage and directed by Wesley Savick. Joyful, whimsical, and rich with humor, both are told from the point of view of children - one a girl, one a boy - and set in the ‘30's - one in the Bronx, one in Alabama. In A Christmas Memory, Truman Capote recalls his close friendship with another social outcast, his wildly eccentric older cousin; they understood each other as no one else could. Grace Paley's The Loudest Voice takes us to a Russian Jewish immigrant school where "without shame" gentile teachers annually staged the Nativity. The inspired Wesley Savick crafts the perfect holiday alternative with an intergenerational cast, puppetry, music, and fruitcakes.
