Christmas Eve at the Mermaid

Dec 15, 2020

On Sunday, December 20th at 6:00 pm, KUNM's Radio Theater is pleased to present a holiday classic, "Christmas Eve at the Mermaid" by David Dodge and Loyall McLaren.  This delightful sketch dating from the 2930s portrays William Shakespeare, Richard Burbage, Beaumont and Fletcher, and Ben Johnson on Christmas Eve 1597.  While the tavern keeper's wife Jenny fills their tankards with ale, they come up with a wonderful scheme to get some money so they can start the New Year off with a clean slate.  They'll write a holiday ballad and serenade the Queen on Christmas Eve..
