David Hurst takes a look at A Child's Christmas in Wales:
If you prefer your holiday cheer tuneful, sweet and short, you'll do no better than the Irish Repertory Theatre's latest revival of A Child's Christmas in Wales. Based on an autobiographical prose story by the famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, A Child's Christmas in Wales has been adapted and directed by the Rep's Artistic Director, Charlotte Moore. Her adaptation consists mainly of the addition of music with a modicum of staging to Thomas's story, and Moore has had plenty of opportunities to get it right since this is the tenth production of the piece since it was first seen at the Rep twenty-two years ago. Fortunately for audiences, this year's incarnation is a pleasure thanks to six talented performers and a dexterous musical director and accompanist. . . .
