The Eight: Reindeer Monologues
by Jeff Goode
directed by Greg Werstler, Jason Fleece,
Drew Martin & Mark Pracht
December 9th – 31st, 2011
Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa’s eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment. As the press descends, the other reindeer demand to reveal their stories, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges. Stage Left brings this hilarious, international theatrical sensation back to the city where it was first produced in a limited run, late-night production.

“starts out sarcastically funny but soon becomes a very touching, serious look at celebrated yet abusive authority figures… all the performers and the piece’s multiple directors give the show definition” — Brian Kirst, Sheridan Road Magazine
“a solid production with a great cast and is worth the viewing on its merits alone.” Keith Eckler, Chicago Theater Beat
