About this show

This beloved adaptation of a classic Irish folktale has received critical praise: "poignant and bracing…. a "reminder of the season's rich ideals" (Washington Post). Set in the time of the great potato famine, the story follows the journey of Oona Hegarty, a tinker's daughter who yearns to have a cabin of her own. Her wish would go unfulfilled if it weren't for the intervention of the wee folk who come to her aid one snowy Christmas Eve on a hillside in Carnaween.

For the past four seasons, audiences have been coming back each year, making it part of their annual holiday celebration, and reveling in the live Irish music that underscores the tale. See it for the first time, or come and join us for one more visit to a place where "it's always Christmas without… and Christmas within."
