“A Child’s Christmas in Wales” is a full-length musical play, based on Dylan Thomas’s classic story, adapted by Jeremy Brooks and Adrian Mitchell. Set in the Welsh seaside town of Swansea in the 1920’s, the Thomas family celebrates Christmas. Young DYLAN, destined to become a world-renowned poet but on this day an adventure-loving lad of 11 years with a vivid imagination, invites us to join him, his mates, parents, aunts and uncles in recalling and re-living a most adventurous and magical day – a day filled with squabbles, riddles, laughs, disasters, miracles, aunts, uncles, gifts, much food and parsnip wine, ghost stories, song and dance, and the essence of all our Christmases, just the way Christmas always should be.
