10 years after our inaugural production of The Santaland Diaries at the Society Hill Playhouse, Flashpoint has grown into one of the premiere companies in the Delaware Valley for presenting edgy, poignant, and exciting theatre. Keith Conallen delivers again with this acerbic and hilarious tale. David Sedaris is the perfect antidote to a painful holiday sweet-tooth. If you've had enough Dickens and Nutcrackers for a lifetime, come celebrate the more adult side of your holiday spirit! But don't be fooled....even Crumpet has a heart.

The Brown Martin Award honors a production that provides insight into differing individual, cultural, and spiritual perspectives and experiences while exploring how those experiences shape the way we interact with others. We are extremely honored to have won this amazing award!
