Barry Kraft reads Dylan Thomas’s classic Christmas story – A Child’s Christmas in Wales.

This nostalgic recollection of Christmas past captures a child’s-eye view and an adult’s fond memories of a magical time and evokes the beauty of the season at every turn.

It’s been nearly two-thirds of a century since the 37 year old Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, unsteadily placed himself in front of a recording microphone in NYC and gave the listening world a magnificent reading of his prose masterpiece, “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”.  The short work, probably Thomas’s most loved creation, is an imaginative and nostalgic evocation of his childhood acquaintances and experiences.
       Barry has been an actor, dramaturg, and lecturer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for 30 seasons. Numerous acting credits also include the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Utah Shakespeare Festival, Old Globe at San Diego, San Jose Repertory Theatre, Berkeley Shakespeare Festival, and ACT, among others. He has acted in 87 full productions of all Shakespeare’s 38 plays (more than 100 roles).  He has written Shakespeare Insult Generator and has recorded several books on tape for Blackstone Audio, including Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
