The Long Christmas Dinner

Home   /   The Long Christmas Dinner

by Thornton Wilder

“The Long Christmas Dinner–nine decades long–showcases the lives of several generations of the Bayard family, and some of their Christmas dinners. Wilder breaks the boundaries of time as we measure it, and invites us to partake of ‘one long, happy Christmas dinner’-past, present and future. As generations appear, have children, wither and depart, only the audience appreciates what changes and what remains the same.” (Thornton Wilder Society)
