PROGRAM

THE EIGHT: Reindeer Monologues

by JEFF GOODE

directed by MICHAEL R LIPP

Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa’s eight tiny reindeer makes a shocking accusation. As mass media descends upon the event, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself.

With each deer’s confession, the truth behind the explosive allegations becomes clearer and clearer… and murkier and murkier… in this wickedly black comedy!

SHOW CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE AND ADULT SITUATIONS.

DICK KEREKES & LEISLA SANSOM, eu Jacksonville, says:

This play debuted in 2006 and has been done a number of times, and in some settings has become an annual event. Director Michael Lipp happened upon the script on a visit to New York several years ago and liked it so much that he bought a copy and tucked it away for a time when he could direct it. Well, the time was right in 2011 and The 5 & Dime was just the right group to do it. This is cutting edge theatre…
