Make no mistake about it, these reindeer games from the Happy Medium Theatre company are definitely for adults only. In this dark-as-coal Christmas comedy, the North Pole becomes a hotbed of scandal when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of a little jolly old sexual harassment. As the media catches the scent of scandal and invades Santa's sanctuary, the rest of the reindeer chime in with their own perspectives. The result: a heinous (and hilarious) tale of perversion and corruption that entangles everyone from the littlest elf in the workshop to, of course, the big man who sits in the sleigh: Saint Nick himself. With its firm commitment to community in mind, Happy Medium Theatre will be donating all profits from The Eight: Reindeer Monologues to various Boston area charities, including the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, The Home for Little Wanderers and The Women's Center.

Written by Peter Shaffer
Black Comedy will star Brooks Reeves (Gross Indecency and Closer, Bad Habit Productions) and Louise Hamill (Trog and Clay: An Imagined History of the Electric Chair, Fresh Ink Theatre). Both actors have been praised for their magnetic personalities and impeccable comic timing, and we're so proud to have them lead our show!
Black Comedy will also feature 6 other very well-known names from the Boston Fringe community: Mike Budwey (Cyrano de Bergerac, Apollinaire Theatre), Mikey DiLoreto (Polaroid Stories, Heart & Dagger Productions), Tim Fairley (The Revenants, Happy Medium Theatre), Alyssa Osiecki (Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom, Happy Medium Theatre), Audrey Lynn Sylvia (On This Moon, Flat Earth Theatre), and Michael Underhill (Double Indemnity, Stoneham Theatre).
