The Stratford Library will present a holiday program of the Dylan Thomas classic “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” at 2 p.m. Dec. 6, according to a release.
The event is sponsored by the Friends of Square One Theatre who will also provide light refreshments. It is free and open to the public, the release said.
“A Child’s Christmas in Wales” is "told through a series of warm childhood remembrances of growing up in Wales. Dylan Thomas’ mastery of poetic prose as well as his gorgeous use of the English language reflects not only the Victorian era in Wales from which it evolved but also of a family portrait that speaks of and to the human condition," the release said.
"The prosaic work is brought to life by professional actor Colin Lane with live musical accompaniment by Rebecca Zaretzky. Lane has performed on and Off-Broadway and in most of the major regional theaters from Boston to Los Angeles and Minneapolis to Florida. He's a Dramalogue award winner for his role as Frank Sweeney in “Molly Sweeney” at the Mark Taper Forum in LA. The actor has performed “A Child's Christmas in Wales” over the past 25 years from Boston to Off-Broadway."
The performance is suitable for adults who wish to reminisce and children old enough to sit through a live performance of 30 minutes, the release noted..
