SOUTHEAST PREMIERE

This is a story of two of the greatest writers of the past century, Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams, who are examined in a dialogue that stretches from their early days of friendship to their final, unsparing critiques of each other. Giving life to the dialogue and a physicality to their relationship, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory, The Boys in the Band, Hollywood) is Capote and Emmy nominee Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, The Boys in the Band, American Horror Story) is Williams. Both are icons and yet anti-heroes. In an era that has become glutted with one-named celebrities, it’s time for a return to the originals. The two men themselves, as they lived their own life stories, embody the present more than the subjects they confronted in their works.
