A Child's Christmas in Wales - USA/Canada ONLY
Published by Dramatic Publishing
Large Mixed Cast
"I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or twelve days and twelve nights when I was six"
All your Christmases will live again in the magic of Dylan Thomas' poetic language ...
Despite the fact that this is a Welsh Christmas and the music is also Welsh, Dylan Thomas has managed to universalize the very essence of Christmas as any child anywhere might perceive it
If the Play has a plot it is the story of Christmas Day itself, from its quiet, magical beginning full of thrilling expectations to the end when the boy Dylan creeps up to the bed, replete with the joy of a perfect Christmas
The cast is flexible and the staging should be kept simple - attempts at "realism" would undermine the child's-eye view
