Posted on 11/19/2009 12:00am

On Dec 4, 5, 6, The Public Theatre will present "A Very Ida Christmas", the newest play from the team that brought you Ida: Woman Who Runs With the Moose!, and Ida's Havin' a Yard Sale! Return to Mahoosuc Mills, Maine with writer, performer, Maine humorist and DownEast Magazine blogger Susan Poulin, and spend a snowy afternoon with her most popular character, Ida LeClair.

It's Christmas time in the tiny town of Mahoosuc Mills, Maine, and Ida Le Clair's holiday spirit is so bright it could light up a Xmas tree. Come on over to Ida's for the best Christmas ever and get the inside scoop on the do's and don'ts of holiday decorating! Catch up with Ida on her latest Christmas craft projects with her pals, the Women Who Run With the Moose, and discover Ida's hilarious "secret" in her not-so-secret Santa plan. Ida's no Scrooge, so banish your humbugs and come prepared for the funniest Christmas show in Maine.

Selected by Portland Magazine as one of the "Ten Most Intriguing People in Maine," Susan Poulin has been creating and touring her original theatrical productions for seventeen years. Working in collaboration with artist, musician and actor, Gordon Carlisle, Susan's critically acclaimed plays, In My Head I'm Thin, Spousal Deafness... and Other Bones of Contention, Pardon My French!, Ida: Woman Who Runs With The Moose, Ida's Havin' a Yard Sale! and Shutting Up Peggy Lee! have broken box office records throughout the Northeast.
