THE 8: REINDEER MONLOGUES

Genre: Comedy
by Jeff Goode

**Performance Added - Sunday, December 18th at 4pm!**

From the group that brought you *Bite* & *Hoover: A Love Story* comes a Christmas comedy for consenting adults only.

Sex, Lies & Santa - The Reindeer Spill All! The jolly old elf himself is at the top of the naughty list this year and you won't believe what his 8 most trusted reindeer have to say. Come see this tragic tale of how sex, alcohol, pedophilia and rampant bestiality threatened the very existence of Christmas.

Screaming, crying and WAY too much eggnog... isn't that what Christmas is all about?
