Next up will be Jay Presson Allen’s Tru (Dec. 2, 2016–Jan. 1, 2017), about Truman Capote as the writer approaches a lonely Christmas after his high society friends abandon him when they recognize themselves in a published excerpt of his writing.

Following will be Collected Stories (Feb. 3–March 5, 2017), by Donald Margulies, about the protégée of an established author who writes a novel based on her mentor’s affair with a famous poet.

Next will be Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia (March 31–April 30, 2017), about present-day scholars who attempt to interpret the lives of people who are long-dead, fusing the past with the present.
