Onyx Co. presents on stage
The Eight: Reindeer Monologues
Rudolph is in a padded cell, Santa is on a bender, and the reindeer are talking to anyone who'll listen. Such is the premise of Jeff Goode's hard-hitting, chocolaty-dark holiday confection The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, being presented from December 4th through 19th by the Onyx Co.
Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of decidedly un-Christmas-like behavior - sexual harassment, to be exact. As the media descends, the other members of the elite sleigh team share their sordid confessions.
A tale of corruption and perversion emerges, implicating everyone from the littlest elf to Saint Nick himself. With each deer's confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer - and murkier and murkier.
Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general admission. Due to the script’s content, the production is recommended for mature audiences.
The Studio on West is located at 3408 West Avenue. For information and reservations, call (512) 294-9393 or email
