More Info

Join the World Crime League (the people who brought you the Dead of Winter Double Feature and Writer's Block.) for an evening of nine short plays dealing with the darker avenues of the holiday season. This not your typical holly-jolly holiday fare. These Christmas plays have a wicked edge, with humor that can be as dark as the coal black, soulless eyes of Frosty the Snowman. The festival includes: -A (Very Zombie) Christmas Carol by Steph DeFerie The undead plague Victorian London in this classic Charles Dickens tale -The Red Suitcase by Alex Dremann In an airport terminal on Christmas Eve, a cuckolded Santa Claus makes a sinister proposition to an unfaithful husband. -Bring Me Flesh and Bring Me Wine (or Tiny Tim, Who Did Not Die) by Duncan Pflaster On Christmas Eve, Timothy (once known as Tiny Tim), a vampire, wishes to bestow the gift of immortality upon a homeless woman. -Becky's Christmas Wish by Ashley Lauren Rogers Every Christmas, Santa sends a magical elf to the best little boy or girl in the world in order to grant them a wish. This year, the elf appears to Becky, who makes a wish that the elf is not very keen to grant. -Noel & Joy: A Not So Christmas Special by Joe Samaniego Joy and her girlfriend Noel spend Christmas Eve hunting for the perfect Christmas tree in a less-than-stellar tree farm, and trying to put off the dreaded visit from Joy's conservative parents. -Bobby's Letter to Santa by Nicholas Gentile and Lisa Gentile Jesus Christ calls for a meeting with Santa Claus regarding the future direction of Christmas, making the latter fear for his own future. -Cold Outside by Duncan Pflaster Inspired by one of the more questionable Christmas standards, the Mouse stays to help clean up after the Wolf's holiday party and is subjected to the Wolf's unwanted attentions. -Christmas Present by Valerie Borey After doing some holiday shopping, Juniper meets a man on the bus she had a thing with and gives him an unwanted Christmas present. -Shooting Father Christmas by Andrew Rosdail A disturbed woman plans to assassinate Santa Claus during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade These nine shows will be directed by Stephanie Alexander, Ryan Beal, Andrew Rosdail, and Troy Stolp The cast will consist of local Twin Cities actors Kendra Alaura, Varghese Alexander, Al Fiene, Kya Kischer, Haley Hubbard, Alex Kokovich,James Miskimen, Christine Pietz, Andy Rakerd, Bethel Safawo, Evan Slack, Leigh Webber, Alexander Wolfe, Cayla Marie Wolpers, & Chelsea Wren. Content warning: this festival will contain harsh and potentially offensive language, sexual content, violence, gun violence, blood, and at least two very vulgar Santa Clauses. This event is very much for mature audiences only. The title is the only thing that is censored.
