Provision Theater Company, a non-profit equity theater dedicated to producing works of hope and reconciliation, ushers in the holiday season with production of 'A Christmas Memory' and 'The Thanksgiving Visitor'.

Based on the best-selling books by critically acclaimed author Truman Capote, A Christmas Memory and The Thanksgiving Visitor center on the author's early years growing up in Monroeville, Alabama and will run Friday, November 22 through Sunday, December 29 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. at Provision Theater, 1001 W. Roosevelt Rd., Chicago, IL, 60608.

A tale of love and bonding between a young boy named Buddy and his eccentric, simpleminded, aging Aunt Sook, Capote's 'A Christmas Memory' is set in Alabama during the 1930s Great Depression and is based on Capote's childhood memories.

Thanksgiving and Christmas mean something different to everyone. For seven year-old Buddy, it means a new home and a new family. When his mother drops him off with her somewhat eccentric family at the edge of a small town, Buddy's first friend becomes his best friend -- he develops an unforgettable relationship with his elderly cousin, Miss Sook Falk. The two find themselves on one amazing adventure after another, proving that friendship is the greatest gift of all.

Join Provision Theater for this heart-warming production adapted and directed by Provision Theater's very own Artistic Director Timothy Gregory. Captivating all ages, 'A Christmas Memory' and 'The Thanksgiving Visitor' is sure to create new holiday memories for you and your family.

If you're looking for an uplifting holiday experience and you're tired of the same old "bah, humbug," this show is for you!
