The Long Chrismas Dinner
By Thornton Wilder


Dramatic Comedy

The Long Christmas Dinner – nine decades long – showcases the lives of several generations of the Bayard family, and some of their Christmas dinners. Wilder breaks the boundaries of time as we measure it, and invites us to partake of  “one long, happy Christmas dinner” – past, present, and future. As generations appear, have children, wither, and depart, only the audience appreciates what changes and what remains the same. “Every last twig is wrapped around with ice. You almost never see that,” young Genevieve marvels, not realizing that her mother made this observation years earlier, or that her daughter-in-law will one day do the same.

A Childs Christmas in Wales
By Dylan Thomas

Adapted by Jeremy Brooks and Adrian Mitchell.

Drama

All your Christmases will live again in the magic of Dylan Thomas' poetic language. "I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or twelve days and twelve nights when I was six." Despite the fact that this is a Welsh Christmas and the music is also Welsh, Dylan Thomas has managed to universalize the very essence of Christmas as any child anywhere might perceive it. If the play has a plot it is the story of Christmas Day itself, from its quiet, magical beginning full of thrilling expectations to the end when the boy Dylan creeps up to the bed, replete with the joy of a perfect Christmas.
