Tom Key | Christmas Memory
C.S. Lewis on Stage | Cotton Patch Gospel | The Revelation of John | Revelation Project | Screwtape in Person | Christmas Memory
In Key's words, "As a southerner, A Christmas
Memory is for me what, I suppose, A Christmas Carol is for a British
person. They are both universal stories, but the details of Capote's
childhood Alabama holiday, evoke my deepest and most cherished feelings
about the season. For me, the hilarity, the wonder and the joy of
the story make me feel as though I'm three years old, in my pajamas,
smelling the evergreen at 7AM on December 25, experiencing the miracle
of Christmas for the first time."
It is a poignant and hilarious remembrance of how a lonely seven
year-old boy and his beloved 70 year-old aunt celebrate Depression
era holidays in rural Alabama.
Each reading is approximately 40 minutes and with a ten minute intermission
