Showtime with the Encore Players

The Long Christmas Dinner and Other Plays in One Act by Thornton Wilder

Livermore’s community theatre group, Encore Players, will present a free preview of their production of Thornton Wilder’s The Long Christmas Dinner on Sunday, November 17, 2019, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Long Christmas Dinner showcases nine decades in the lives of several generations of one family, during their Christmas dinners.  Wilder breaks the boundaries of time and invites the audience 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.  The Long Christmas Dinner and Other Selected Works by Thornton Wilder will be performed by Encore Players, December 6-8, at the Bothwell Arts Center. 

This preview show is part of the library’s Authors and Arts Series, supported by the Friends of the Livermore Library.
