\r\n<h1>The Lewisburg Literary Festival, in partnership with Greenbrier Valley Theatre, the State Professional Theatre of West Virginia, presents Jay Presson Allen\u2019s \u201cTru.\u201d<\/h1>\r\nBased on the words and works of American writer Truman Capote, this one-man show runs Aug. 3 and 4 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 5 at 3 p.m. at Greenbrier Valley Theatre. This program is sponsored by MedExpress Urgent Care.\r\n\r\nThe event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Tickets are available at the Greenbrier County CVB by phone at 888-716-5082 or in person at 905 Washington Street West in Lewisburg.\r\n\r\nThe setting is Capote\u2019s apartment, 1975. An excerpt from Capote\u2019s book \u201cAnswered Prayers\u201d has just been published, but when his friends see themselves in his work their sense of betrayal leads them to desert him. Alone, Capote, portrayed in this production by actor Mark Chambers, contemplates his life and what might lie in his future.\r\n\r\nChambers is no stranger to the role of Truman Capote. He has played it in the past to great critical acclaim, most recently in 2016 at St. Petersburg, Florida\u2019s Studio@620.\r\n\r\nThe Lewisburg Literary Festival is a two-day celebration of books, writers, and the arts, focusing on promoting reading and literacy. This is the festival\u2019s sixth year. All the events are free to the public, underwritten by local sponsors. This year\u2019s festival will take place on Aug. 4 and 5.\r\n\r\nThis program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture & History and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
