Coney Island Christmas

Coney Island Christmas $13

Donald Margulies from Grace Paley

Published by Dramatists Play Service

Large Mixed Cast
Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies weaves together nostalgia, music and merriment in this new festive classic

This holiday show for people of all ages and all faiths introduces us to Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who (much to her immigrant parents' exasperation) is cast as Jesus in the school's Christmas pageant

As Shirley - now much older - recounts the memorable story to her great-granddaughter, the play captures a timeless and universal tale of what it means to be an American during the holidays

M8,F10 (doubling, flexible casting)


"Gave me the gift of wonder incredible enchantment!" ~ LA Times

"A jewel simply hilarious!" ~ Variety

"The biggest hit of the jam-packed holiday season!" ~ Backstage
