How to find a DVD of Tru the American Playhouse version on PBS?
20 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The PBS filming of Tru from the Broadway play was so wonderful. My entire family loved it. It was our "Christmas Movie" to watch together and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. It was so well written and acted, just a complete joy to watch. Well, unfortunately we lost the copy we had and can't find it anywhere. (believe me I've tried) My Mother passed away not long ago, just before Christmas and so did my Father. My sister and I wanted so badly to bring a little joy back to our lives and watch our "FAMILY Christmas FAVORITE' but we could not find it anywhere. Please Oh, please help us!!!! Is there any way we can find this on DVD? It would mean so much to us to be able to view this at Christmas (and other times too) and remember ....... the joy we had with our parents watching this most wonderful show. If this e mail could be passed on to Ms. Jay Pressman Allen I would really appreciate it. I want her to know how much joy her writing and brilliant talent has brought my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Mary Deacon
