The Santaland Diaries

A comedy by David Sedaris

Directed by Argo Thompson

December 1 - 17, 2017

A delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy's. Priceless observations, both outrageous and subtle. Destined to hold a place in the annals of American humor writing.

—NY Times

THE STORY: This wry tale is based on the outlandish, and true, chronicles of Sedaris’ brief stint as an elf in Macy’s SantaLand. His hysterical, behind-the-scenes anecdotes are a holiday treat for adults, mercilessly cutting through the sticky-sweetness of Christmas to illuminate the insanity of the holidays and the resilience of the human spirit. David Yen is back as Crumpet the Elf for his tenth annual and final production of best-selling author David Sedaris’ sardonic comedy. The play is directed by fellow crazy elf, Argo Thompson.
