Santa Land Diaries
Santa Land Diaries began life as an essay by David Sedaris. It’s a true and very humorous account of Sedaris working as a Christmas elf at Macy’s department store. Sedaris first read the essay on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and the piece was well-received and provided Sedaris with his first major break. Sedaris later published the essay in the collections Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice. For the past 11 Christmas’s the play has been a holiday mainstay at Atlanta’s Horizon Theatre. For everyone of those decade plus one years has dawned the role of Sedaris’s character, Crumpet the Elf.
