The Long Christmas Dinner and The Thanksgiving Play


Western Reserve Playhouse

Bath, OH
Community Theatre

By: Thornton Wilder and Larissa Fasthorse

November 17 - November 18, 2023

Show Description:

The Long Christmas Dinner showcases the lives of several generations of the Bayard family, and some of their Christmas dinners. Thornton Wilder breaks the boundaries of time, and invites us to partake of “one long, happy Christmas dinner”-past, present and future.

In The Thanksgiving Play, good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa Fasthorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that will somehow manage to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.
