Are you looking for something different for Christmas this year? Tired of Christmas Carol and Gift of the Magi? Well, this is the play for you…eight reindeer dishing about the real Santa. All those rumors you’ve heard about him and the elves? About Rudolph’s little secret? About Vixen’s story that was leaked to the press? All true. Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and – believe us – they do not hold back!
Adult audience only.
“The Eight” has been well-received in the press: “wickedly topical” NEW YORK TIMES; “excellent thought provoking” DRAMALOGUE MAGAZINE; “arrestingly funny” VILLAGE VOICE.
Jeff Goode says, “A dark, dark Christmas comedy. Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa’s eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment.”
“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 Santa himself.”
“With each deer’s confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer…and murkier and murkier.”
The show will run for just two performances at the Embassy, with show times at 8 pm on Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10. Admission is $16 adults, $14 seniors.
Call (240) 362-7183 to make reservations, as well as to confirm the dinner/theatre package information.
Embassy productions are sponsored in part by the Allegany County Arts Council and the City of Cumberland.
