The tradition of sending greeting cards at Christmas time got its start during Queen Victoria’s reign. While it is a tradition still enjoyed today, we’ve come a long way since those first cards were sent through the post to bring holiday cheer.
The cards of yesteryear feature artwork that may be surprising — both joyously and shockingly so! Inspired by a selection of these cards, local playwrights created 6 new short plays. (See card prompts here.) Come celebrate the holidays by embracing the spirit of Christmas cards as they once were.
Playwrights: Shanna Allman, Henry Brown, Jay Cross, Kate Danley, Buffy Sedlachek, and Scott Zenreich
Directors: Rowan Gallagher, Christopher Kidder-Mostrom, Hannah Lund, Jane Ryan, Catherine Blake Smith, and Kirsten Traylor-Thorson
