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.

Reviews & Ratings
Happy Medium Theatre, Inc. (HMT) furthers and challenges audiences with The American Plan, written by Richard Greenberg and directed by Melanie Garber (Priscilla Dreams the Answer, Fresh Ink Theatre).
HMT’s take on The American Plan is an exciting new look at an early, acclaimed play by the Tony Award-winning author of Take Me Out. It is the Catskill Mountains in the early 1960s, and Lili Adler and her mother Eva are spending the summer across the lake from a bustling hotel where comics entertain and buffets overflow.
When a handsome young stranger enters their world, the emotionally fragile Lili finds herself falling in love. But once her imperious mother learns of their relationship, lies are exposed, alliances are forged and Lili's one chance to escape her mother's control may be lost forever.
The cast will feature 5 up-and-coming Boston Fringe Theatre actors: Mikey DiLoreto (Trog and Clay: An Imagined History of the Electric Chair, Fresh Ink Theatre), Lauren Foster (Godspell, The Lexington Players), Robyn Linden (Foreverendia, 11:11 Theatre), Nick Miller (REFUGE, Happy Medium Theatre), and Audrey Lynn Sylvia (The Country Club, Happy Medium Theatre).
