by David Sedaris

Does it seem like the holidays arrive sooner every year? Are you already tired of snicker-doodle-pine-vomit-ginger-spiced-nutmeg-laced-holly-cookies? Does the thought of hearing Jingle Bells have you contemplating how to stab people without getting caught? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the show for you! The Santaland Diaries, a hilarious comedy from the cynical genius of David Sedaris, follows Crumpet at his new full-time job as a Macy’s elf and serves up the antidote to your holiday bitterness.
