This Sunday, Decenber 27th, at The Open Eye's 2:00 pm matinee performance of "A Child's Christmas in Wales," open captioning will make the production accessible to persons with hearing impairment. The vivid and often humorous poetic imagery of Dylan Thomas' memories of holiday seasons of his childhood in the 1920's may remind us - ever so slightly - of course, of our own childhood Christmases. With open captioning, the words spoken by the actors are visible on a screen near the stage.
The ensemble of five adults and five young actors play a variety of roles in Thomas' story of Arctic-like snow and fire engines, cats and hippos, elderberry wine and marzipan, groaning uncles and singing aunts. There are traditional carols and Welsh cookies and more. Fun for audiences of all ages.
