Cold Reading: Coney Island Christmas by Donald Margulies
Cold Reading Friday December 18th 2020 7:30pm
Coney Island Christmas by Donald Margulies, based on the story “The Loudest Voice” by Grace Paley, will be read via Zoom on Friday, December 18th at 7:30 pm
Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies weaves together nostalgia, music, and merriment in this new seasonal classic. A holiday show for people of all ages and all faiths, CONEY ISLAND CHRISTMAS introduces us to Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who (much to her immigrant parents’ exasperation) is cast as Jesus in the school’s Christmas pageant. As Shirley, now much older, recounts the memorable story to her great-granddaughter.
