From the theatre that brought you the year-long run of David & Amy Sedaris' The Book of Liz, The Santaland Diaries is an outrageously funny one-man play (from NPR's well-loved humorist David Sedaris) about the author's experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy's. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike. For those who like a little spice with their Christmas sugar, this tale of mass marketing, stressed out sales clerks, drunk Santas, screaming kids and the general insanity of the holidays is hilarious, witty, sardonic and unpredictable; mercilessly cutting through the Christmas spirit to point out what crazy things we do as human beings during the holidays.
