Be on hand as Betty, Lin and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park holiday extravaganza.

The Santaland Diaries
December 5-28, 2014
By David Sedaris; Adapated for the stage by Joe Mantello
Based on the true chronicles of David Sedaris’ experience as Crumpet the Elf in Macy’s Santaland display, this cult classic riffs on a few of Sedaris’ truly odd encounters with his fellow man during the height of the holiday crunch. NPR humorist and best-selling author of When You Are Engulfed in Flames , Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim , David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers, and this production has almost become an Addison holiday tradition.

About the Play
ALL MY SONS
Set in post-World War II, Arthur Miller’s landmark drama examines the relationships between fathers and sons and the price of living the American Dream. An explosive secret threatens to tear the family apart in this powerful play about the conflict between business ethics and taking responsibility for one’s actions.
Winner of the first Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play, All My Sons established Miller as a leading voice in the American theatre. Based on a true story.
