This December, Irish Rep offers up the sixth special return of its joyous holiday classic, Dylan Thomas’s iconic A Child’s Christmas in Wales. Charlotte Moore’s musical adaptation of this “never to be forgotten day at the end of the unremembered year” features heartwarming contemporary and traditional Christmas music interwoven with the popular story of that snowy Christmas Day in Wales.
The New York Times described this production as “a cavalcade of imagery and sensation … the descriptions of treats and toys are evocative [and] the carols appealingly sung. This sweet show conjures up plenty of goodwill toward men.” And the Wall Street Journal called it “irresistible…It warms the heart like a blazing Yule log.
A Child’s Christmas in Wales returns to the Irish Rep stage for the sixth time this holiday season. Charlotte Moore premiered this adaptation in 2002 as part of A Celtic Christmas. The Associated Press said of a subsequent run in 2010, that the production “leave[s] the audience feeling as though they’re tucked inside a cozy, musical snowglobe.” The production was revived, by popular demand, for the 2011, 2015, and 2018 holiday seasons.
Tickets for A Child’s Christmas in Wales start at $70 standard and $25 for Greenseats. Be sure to catch this heartwarming play before it disappears!
