Description

The Long Christmas Dinner is happening on Friday, December 09, 2022 at 07:30PM EST at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church and It's Free

The Long Christmas Dinner – nine decades long – showcases the lives of several generations of the Bayard family. Wilder breaks the boundaries of time as we measure it, and invites us to partake of “one long, happy Christmas dinner” – past, present and future. As generations appear, have children, wither, and depart, only the audience appreciates what changes and what remains the same. “Every last twig is wrapped around with ice. You almost never see that,” young Genevieve marvels, not realizing that her mother made this observation years earlier, or that her daughter-in-law will one day do the same.

Written by three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thornton Wilder, author of the modern classicsOur Town and The Skin of Our Teeth, The Long Christmas Dinneris a 40-minute play that is "like a surprise holiday gift" (The New York Times). This production features several professional actors alongside community members and is directed by Gary Sloan.

There is no charge to attend, but a freewill offering of any amount at the door is encouraged.
