With partial funding by the Wyoming Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, Relative Theatrics presents a revival of THE SANTALAND DIARIES by David Sedaris, adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello, December 6-9, 2017 with a pay-what-you-can preview night on Tuesday December 5. All performances are at 7:30pm. The production is at the LPCC Gryphon Theatre and is directed by Mark Mieden and features local actor Ryan Archibald. THE SANTALAND DIARIES is back by popular demand and is the holiday special in Relative Theatrics’ fifth season. Audience seating is on stage with only 50 tickets per show and we often sell out so get your tickets early!
Nationally acclaimed humorist David Sedaris’ story based on his own experiences, THE SANTALAND DIARIES tells the tale of an out-of-work actor who ﬁnds a holiday job as an elf at Macy’s in New York City. “This delightfully tart tale takes a wry look at how the holiday season brings out the best – and the worst – in us all.” (American Shakespeare Center) "A sardonic, merrily subversive tale—just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed. Worth more than a photo album full of Santas!" (NY Newsday) "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 play contains adult themes and language. Audience members are invited to stay after the show and have a hot drink with Crumpet the Elf and chat with the artistic team.
