  • Overview
    The Long Christmas Ride Home is a one-act full-length play by American playwright Paula Vogel that was first performed in 2003. It dramatises a road trip by two parents and their three young children to visit grandparents for the Christmas holiday, as well as the emotional turmoil undergone by various members of the family. A significant element of the production schema is a Western, contemporary employment of bunraku, an ancient form of Japanese puppetry.
