Irish Repertory Theatre brings Dylan Thomas's A Child's Christmas in Wales back to New York City for the holiday season, beginning performances November 28 on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage. The production will run through December 30 with an official opening set for December 3.

Adapted and directed by Charlotte Moore, A Child's Christmas in Wales is about the "never to be forgotten day at the end of the unremembered year," when songs are sung, cakes and sweets are abundant, and the frozen city parks are laden with mysteries and adventures for wild boys and girls to explore. This favorite Irish Rep tradition features both classic and contemporary Christmas music interwoven with Thomas's story of a snowy Christmas Day in Wales.

The production will feature musical direction by John Bell, scenic design by James Morgan, costume design by Barbara A. Bell, and lighting design by Michael Gottlieb. Pamela Brusoski will serve as production stage manager.
