The Eight: Reindeer Monologues
Thursday, December 8 through Sunday, December 11
Thursday – Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2pm
When the jolliest elf in the North Pole is accused of un-Christmas like conduct a media frenzy ensues. Hear what Dasher, Hollywood, Blitzen and the rest of the elite team of The Eight most famous Reindeer have to say about the accusations involving Santa and his less than jolly behavior, what Mrs. Claus is like at the annual holiday party and what really happened that foggy night with Rudolph.
Director Catherine Bertrand says, "The Eight: Reindeer Monologues takes the traditional myth of Santa and his flying reindeer and combines it with the modern day voyeurism and vulture like behavior of the media and its consumers. The concept of the play allows us to laugh at the absurdity of reindeer making brutal accusations of a man held in the highest esteem. Yet when you take away the antlers what playwright, Jeff Goode, has given the audience is a bold statement regarding politics, gender roles and every other major hot button topic with which this contemporary, media-saturated society is obsessed.”
Directed by Catherine M. Bertrand of Salem.
