The Santaland Diaries

After a struggling actor arrives in New York City, he can only find employment at Macy’s department store working as an elf in Santaland. As the elf Crumpet he recounts tales of obsessive American consumerism with all the enchanting cynicism and jaded horror of a retail veteran. How will he survive the onslaught of drunken Santas, belligerent parents, and flirtatious coworkers? Join Crumpet as he gives audiences a peak into the bedlam of a holiday season department store in this sardonic comedy. Adapted by Joe Mantello, based on essays by David Sedaris, Directed by Toby Yatso, starring Louis Farber. Produced by Davisson Entertainment. *Recommended for mature audiences.
