It's hard to tell the difference between right and wrong in this tragicomic tale of dysfunction taking place in a small Northeast Georgia town where private desires and public morality collide.

Three gorgeous women are ripe for their big break, but this dark trip through the seedy side of Hollywood turns hopeful dreams into nightmares.

When a powerful agent known only as "Captain" offers up starlets Matchbox, Pretty Sexy and The Vil for Fennigan's latest picture, the story takes a twisted turn through back-alley motels and murder scenes.

What could be better than celebrating Christmas every single day?

This dystopian, noir-influenced comedy from the Royal George Theatre finds Santa ruling the world with an iron mitten like a not-so-holly-jolly overlord.

The Eight Reindeer Monologues Nov 28 - Dec 13, 2014  
Cuckoo's Theater Project at Theatre Momentum Studio The Eight Reindeer Monologues
 
Make no mistake about it, these reindeer games from The Cuckoo's Theater Project are definitely for adults only. This dark-as-coal Christmas favorite by award-winning playwright Jeff Goode (Love Loves a Pornographer) finds the North Pole a hotbed of scandal after one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of a little jolly old sexual harassment. As the media catches the scent of scandal and invades Santa's sanctuary, the rest of the reindeer chime in with their own perspectives. The result: a heinous (and hilarious) tale of perversion and corruption -- entangling everyone from the littlest elf in the workshop to the tainted Saint himself -- that's sure to have those with a slightly twisted sense of humor howling this holiday season.
