About this show

Paula Vogel's Long Christmas Ride Home follows a family through a disastrous Christmas evening and its repercussions on the future lives of the three children stuck in the backseat of a car on a long ride home. The script takes its cue from Japanese puppet theatre, using music, dance and poetry to tell this sprawling story that spans decades. In her long and celebrated career, Paula Vogel has tackled many taboo subjects: AIDS, incest, abuse, prostitution. Her ability to create emotional truth in these uncharted territories has made her one of the most produced playwrights around the country.
