The Shortest Day

$17.99 USD

"So the shortest day came, and the year died..." The opening words of Susan Cooper's iconic poem have brought a hush to audiences for over forty years of theater productions in celebration of the winter solstice and the Yuletide season. The Shortest Day captures the magic behind the returning of seasonal light, with the yearning for rituals that connect us with the generations that have gone before – and the hope for peace that we carry into the future.
