“Enough to make even die-hard agnostics believe, at least for an instant, in the mystical powers of drama.” –Ben Brantley, New York Times
Past and present collide on a snowy Christmas Eve for a troubled family of five. Humorous and heart-wrenching, this beautifully written play proves that magic can be found in the simplest breaths of life. Combining the elements of Noh theatre and Bunraku with contemporary Western sensibilities, Vogel’s The Long Christmas Ride Home is a mesmerizing homage to the works of Thornton Wilder. A moving and memorable study of the American family careening near the edge of oblivion.
