Truman Capote tells a dream

Truman Capote

Truman Capote had a book in which he wrote down his dreams with all the details. “It was like being at the cinema”, the American writer and playwright said.

“My most persistent dream — which I’ve discovered is a very common one always took place backstage in a theatre. I have a very important part to play. The only trouble is that I’m in a panic because I don’t know my lines, I’ve never read the play, and I’m ashamed that people are going to find this out. Finally, the moment comes. I walk onstage. Everybody else is excellent, but I just stumble about, mortified. Have you ever had that dream?”
