The Long Christmas Dinner was first published as part of a collection of Thornton Wilder one-act plays on November 5, by Coward-McCann in New York. Initially produced, along with four other one-acts, at the Yale University theatre by the Yale Dramatic Association and the Vassar College Philatheis, it went on to licensed productions at.

Wilder's plays have a active time component set in them where the characters grow old on stage and the readers/viewers get to see the change between acts - as was the case in Our Town.

In The Long Christmas dinner, Wilder does all of it in one act with ages and time marked on the stage and merges one event across different times/5. One of the best one-act plays I have read. Decades in the history of one family is compressed around a Christmas dinner table.

At one side of the stage, you have a portal marked "birth" and the other side, "death" - characters come in as babies, grow up, grow old, and go out to death - all the time partaking in a Christmas dinner which are a multitude of dinners merged into one/5.
