Christmas Eve at the Mermaid

Dec 17, 2020

On Sunday, December 20th Radio Theater is pleased to present "Christmas Eve at the Mermaid" by David Dodge and Loyall McLaren -- a delightful sketch dating from the 1930s.  It portrays William Shakespeare, Richard Burbage, Beaumont and Fletcher, and Ben Jonson 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.
