“From the American Civil War to the trenches of World War I to the warm glow of an Irish country Christmas, The Bells of Christmas expresses the pleasure and poignancy of the holiday season,” according to IRT. “The performance features passages from the works of acclaimed authors Hugh Leonard, Frank O’Connor and Henry Williamson and poems by the great Longfellow, Yeats, Kavanagh and Heaney, all interwoven with a medley of Yuletide carols, music and narratives that evoke a longing for home and hearth.”

Arranged and directed by Ciarán O’Reilly with set design by Jean Moore and lighting design by Paul Jones, the production will feature Clo Bowyer (Playboy of the Western World), Keith Merrill (North Carolina Theatre’s Camelot), Jay Lusteck (Beowulf) and Julie Price (The Sound of Music), with musical direction by Mary Feinsineur.
