Irish Repertory Theatre has announced the cast for A Child's Christmas in Wales, Charlotte Moore's adaptation of Dylan Thomas's short story, running November 28-December 30 on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage, with opening night set for December 3. This will be the show's fourth staging at Irish Rep after previous runs during the 2010, 2011, and 2015 holiday seasons.

Nicholas Barasch (She Loves Me), Dewey Caddell (It's a Wonderful Life), Margaret Dudasik (Cabaret national tour), Polly McKie (The Home Place), Naomi Louisa O'Connell (Master Class), and Ashley Robinson (A Clockwork Orange) will star in the production.

Adapted and directed by 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.
