Journey to both sides of the pond with two short plays this holiday season. Travel to Wales and celebrate the joy of memories and family, then return to the States with an American Christmas and beloved playwright, Thornton Wilder.

One of the most enduring, yet oft-forgot holiday memoirs, Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales comes to life, for the 9th season, at Stone Soup Theatre, recreating the nostalgic times of Thomas’ childhood Christmas when everything was brighter, better, and more alive. Share Dylan Thomas’ holiday memories and bring back a few of your own in this holiday classic perfect for the entire family.

The Long Christmas Dinner is a human, tender play that journeys the lives of several generations of the Bayard family, and some of their Christmas dinners. Spanning 90 years and several generations, this story is lightened with humor of character, and contains a moving quality that is both appealing and forceful. Author, Thornton Wilder, is best known for the hit play, Our Town.

Each year, our production of A Child’s Christmas in Wales is different because of the sensibilities of a new director: this production is directed by Buddy Todd. So, for those who make Stone Soup their holiday destination (we have an added treat with Thornton Wilder) or those who have not seen Wales in few years – Christmas Dinner is a great reason to come see Wales again. The production begins with a $12.50 preview on December 4 at 7:30pm and runs through December 24th. Showtimes are as follows: 7:30 performances on all Fri/Sat evenings; 2pm matinees on Sun afternoons (except 12/21); 12/21 & 12/24 performances are at 12:30pm and 4pm; and Mon & Tues, 12/22 – 12/23 performances are at 7:30pm. Ticket prices are $25 for a single ticket, $20 for matinees, seniors, and groups of 4 or more.
