"Santaland Diaries move over; there's another seasonal satire on the Christmas stage!" -Ithaca Journal
Join Brian Dykstra as he takes on the subject of Christmas-- one that's not likely to be the next Hallmark holiday special.
Dykstra turns the typical holiday story on its head in Act I with a Dr.Suess/Shel Silverstein-style piece about the commercialization of Christmas--It's packed with holiday characters you'll never forget. The second act is the charming tale of a Vermont Christmas tree in the big city. And just as the Grinch's heart grew three sizes one night, so does Dykstra's flare for a heart-felt tale about the true meaning of the holidays.
"Perhaps most impressive is his shift from the winking social critic his reputation has earned for him to earnest heart-on-his-sleeve sentimentalist!" -Ithaca Times
"A charming story that only the Scroogiest could resist,
and it's told by a master storyteller. Brian Dykstra features his signature wordplay and a surprising amount of heart!" -Ithaca Journal
