“New England Christmas”
Pontine Theatre performs its annual “A New England Christmas.” This year’s production features two holiday tales, one from “New” England and the other from “Old” England. “A Winter Tale” is based on a short story by South Berwick native, Sarah Orne Jewett (1849-1909). Set in a rustic coastal fishing village, it is a tale of a taciturn Yankee farmer and his family fighting to save a pair of landmark pines from a greedy timber contractor. Their struggle unites the whole community, just in time for Christmas. Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” wanders through his memories of childhood Christmases in Wales evoking warmth, humor, wonder and delight.
