Christmas Eve at the Mermaid, by David Dodge and Loyall McLaren

Sun. 12/26: This delightful sketch dating from the 1930s portrays William Shakespeare, Richard Burbage, Beaumont and Fletcher, and Ben Jonson on Christmas Eve of 1597 in the favorite haunt of impecunious Elizabethan playwrights and actors, The Mermaid Tavern.

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. Produced by Camino Real

Productions, LLC with a cast of Albuquerque actors that includes Neil Faulconbridge, Busterlee

Monarco, Craig Myers, Scott Sharot, and Brianna Stallings. Directed by Linda L?pez McAlister.
