Mrs. Coney: A Tale of Christmas
By Belinda Bremner
Directed by Cory Shaw
In this heartwarming and humorous memory play with traditional hymns and carols set at Christmas, a writer recalls his boyhood and the Oklahoma homestead his family lost to the dust bowl. They spent the hard scrabble winter of 1934 in Kentucky with an elderly aunt and uncle. The boy Jamie looks for Christmas in the woods and finds a wounded rabbit and a mysterious old woman. He responds to her bitterness with kindness and they exchange the real gifts of Christmas.
