A Night of Magical Christmas Memories.

“One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the dist ant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep,…”

…And so begins Dylan Thomas’s magical memories of his Welsh childhood from his early morning waking to his final sleep, Dylan’s day is interspersed with glorious songs that celebrate the season. Treat yourself and your families to this delightful lush tapestry that evokes a time gone by.

About the Company: Irish Repertory Theatre

Founded by Ciarán O’Reilly and Charlotte Moore, The Irish Repertory Theatre opened its doors in September 1988 with Sean O’Casey’s The Plough and the Stars. The mission of the theatre was and remains:

* to bring works by Irish and Irish American masters and contemporary playwrights to American audiences,
* to provide a context for understanding the contemporary Irish American experience,
* and to encourage the development of new works focusing on the Irish and Irish American experience, as well as a range of other cultures.

In 1995, we made our permanent home in Chelsea on three completely renovated floors of a former warehouse, allowing for both a Main Stage theatre and a smaller studio space, the W. Scott McLucas Studio. The Irish Repertory Theatre is currently the only year-round theatre company in New York City devoted to bringing Irish and Irish American works to the stage.

Recognized with the 2007 Jujamcyn Theatres Award, a special Drama Desk Award for "Excellence in Presenting Distinguished Irish drama," and the Lucille Lortel Award for "Outstanding Body of Work," the Irish Repertory Theatre has celebrated the very best in Irish theatre for twenty years, from the masters to the new generation of Irish and Irish American writers who are transforming the stage. More than 32,000 audience members annually attend productions at our theatre in the heart of New York’s Off Broadway community. Once here they witness The Irish Repertory Theatre’s engaging perspective on the Irish and their unique contributions to the world of drama.
