The Eight: Reindeer Monologues
Sex. Lies. Santa.
Santa is delivering a massive parcel of talent to The Basement this Christmas season. Michael Hurst, Oliver Driver, Antonia Prebble, Claire Chitham, Sarah Wiseman, Shane Bosher, Madeleine Sami, Fleur Saville, Dean O'Gorman, Anna Jullienne and many more will bring The Eight: Reindeer Monologues to life.
This amazing array of established actors will be supported by some of Auckland's hottest new acting talent. 40 actors will alternate over 14 performances turning The Eight: Reindeer Monologues into a huge Christmas cracker surprise - who knows who will pop out on stage next!
Written by Jeff Goode and a sell-out success around the world, The Eight: Reindeer Monologues is not the usual sugar-coated Christmas fare. Instead, audiences are invited to The Basement for some in-your-face seasonal merriment as this dark Christmas comedy sheds new light on Santa and his eight reindeer. Scandal in the North Pole erupts as one of Santa's eight reindeer accuses him of decidedly un-Christmas like behaviour. Forget happy elves and cute smiling reindeer; think instead of Dasher as a rugby jock; Cupid as a gay toy boy and Vixen as a doe with a tale to tell. You won't know who you are going to see perform. And you'll never look at Santa the same way again!
The Eight: Reindeer Monologues is coarse, witty, vulgar and crude and therefore intended for mature audiences only.
