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.

“If it gets really touch-and-go, we can always throw the dog on the grill.”
Between the laughter and horror lies a haunting and intensely shocking portrait of the cruelties and atrocities of a country at war with itself. First performed in Belgrade in 1997, Family Stories uses the games of four children to explore issues of censorship, war, oppression and rebellion.
Biljana Srbljanovic is a Serbian playwright and politician. She is also a part-time lecturer at the Faculty of the Dramatic Arts in Belgrade. Her plays have been staged in 50 countries.
