A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES
Adapted by Jeremy Brooks and Adrian Mitchell
Based on the classic by Dylan Thomas
Did it snow “six days and nights when I was twelve or was it twelve days and nights when I was six”? A totally delightful evening of whimsy and charm finds young Dylan trying to retell a “perfect” Christmas from his childhood in Wales. Was it the one where he and the other chaps created hours of fun in the snow? Or was it the one where the firemen came to the house Christmas day to rescue the turkey from the smoke-filled kitchen? Not always sure of the details, the audience can be sure of a warm and wonderful family, sweet moments from a time gone by, and lovely, lovely singing as only the Welsh would have it.
“cozy and sweet and funny and warm” – The New Yorker
“A cavalcade of imagery and sensation … The descriptions of treats and toys are evocative, the carols appealingly sung, the cast charming. This sweet show conjures plenty of good will toward men.” – The New York Times
“irresistible… it warms the heart like a blazing Yule log.” – The Wall Street Journal
