The true meaning of Christmas

Theater

Expect warm feelings and sharp details in Tom Key's one-man "Reader's Theater" versions of A Christmas Memory and A Thanksgiving Visitor. Truman Capote's classic short stories draw on his Depression-era childhood in Monroeville, Ala., for humor and unexpected pathos. Don't look for glitzy seasonal razzmatazz, just the kind of touching, unsentimental honesty that can give homespun nostalgia a good name. $28-$54. Tues.-Sat., 7:30 p.m.; Sun., 2:30 p.m. Through Dec. 24. Theatrical Outfit, 84 Luckie St. 678-528-1500. www.theatricaloutfit.org.
