In collaboration with JIB Productions, producers of Fairfield County’s lunchtime theater program, Play With Your Food, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will present Seasons Readings.

This new program promises a laughter-filled literary afternoon of heartwarming, seasonal short stories and plays performed by professional actors and delicious refreshments, all in the majestic holiday-decorated Rotunda of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. Sure to be included in the program is Wolcott Gibb’s “Ring Out Wild Bells”, a hilarious take on a Christmas pageant at Riverdale Country School that was originally published in The New Yorker magazine.

Other pieces include Suzanne Zelitch’s “I Had a Little Dreidel”, a poignant reflection on being your true self even while traveling in uncharted lands; “Geek Week” by Rebecca O’Connell, a holiday tale about two kids who bond at camp and discover they have more than a love of science in common; and Ray Bradbury’s little-known gem, “The Gift”, which shoots us into outer space on Christmas Eve.
