FOR MATURE ELVES ONLY! The Santaland Diaries is an outrageously funny one-man play about the author’s experiences as an unemployed actor/writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s department store in New York City. A delightfully absurd look at the commercial underbelly of the holiday season, Sedaris’ sharp and hilarious observations from the other side of what it’s like to work at Santaland have become a delightful adult cult classic.
