A Reading of The Long Christmas Dinner by Thornton Wilder

Joe's Pub

December 11, 2016


Member tickets: $37.50
Non-member tickets: $75

Public Forum’s holiday tradition returns, with a brand new cast! Thornton Wilder’s beautiful play takes place over one hundred years of Christmas dinners with the Bayard family, where they see triumph & heartbreak, birth & death, and a changing world – while some things, like family and tradition, remain constant. 

See our complete Public Forum 2016-17 Season.

Special thanks to The Philip and Janice Levin Foundation’s lead support for The Public’s access and engagement programming.
