The Santaland Diaries is the hit solo show based on a short story by humorist David Sedaris. It's the outrageously funny tale of Sedaris' stint as an embittered elf at Macy's in New York City. At first, the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's Workshop, Crumpet the Elf becomes battle-weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on children and parents alike. Sedaris is the best-selling author of When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and his latest, Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls. Wendy Knox directs Portland favorite Darius Pierce in his return as Crumpet. Learn More

Lauren Weedman made her television debut on Comedy Central's Emmy Award-winning The Daily Show With Jon Stewart in 2001 as a featured correspondent. It was at that same time that Lauren was a regular on NPR's national political satire show Rewind and appeared in her solo show Homecoming. With Bust Weedman has transformed her experience straddling the line between jail and Hollyweird into a hilariously poignant one-woman show.
