Monroeville will welcome a very special guest on the weekend of September 27. Princess Anna Christina Radziwill, a longtime family friend of Truman Capotes's, will be attending the world premiere of “Truman Talks Nelle Harper Lee.”

The play, written and performed by Broadway actor Joel Vig, will be presented in the historic Monroe County Courthouse and focuses on the relationship between two of Alabama's most prominent writers. The setting is a fictional surprise party on Nelle Harper Lee's fiftieth birthday. Mr. Vig is noted for originating roles in ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Ruthless, The Musical.’
