Join us for The Irish Repertory Theatre of New York's adaptation of Dylan Thomas' A Child's Christmas in Wales. On that legendary "Snowy Christmas Day" songs are sung, cakes are gobbled up, ghost stories are whispered, and wild Indians roam the City Park! While the uncles, stuffed with pudding, nap and bellow on the parlor couch, we're taken back in time to remember the joys of being young, the strength of a community and the comfort of a loving family. Dylan Thomas' iconic A Child's Christmas in Wales features both traditional and contemporary holiday music and is the perfect way to celebrate with your family.
