As a theatre practitioner,  Vel Subra believes in the transformative power of the theatre to express ideas and challenge conventions. With his new production of the one-man show TRU, about legendary American writer Truman Capote, Subra seeks to challenge what he describes as a tokenism-addled theatre industry as he becomes the first Tamil, non-Caucasian to tackle the role of Truman Capote in the Drama Desk Award winning comic-drama by Jay Presson Allen. Theatrepeople caught up with Subra to talk about his production of this acclaimed play.
