One Acts by Thornton Wilder
The evening consists of two short one acts by Thornton Wilder revolving around family relationships. “The Long Christmas Dinner” walks the audience through nine decades and four generations. Wilder breaks the boundaries of time as we measure it. As generations appear, have children, wither and depart, the audience appreciates what changes and what stays the same. In “The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden” Wilder chronicles a family trip which shows their family relationships. The program will be rounded out with monologues from the well known Wilder play “The Matchmaker.”
