Christmas is a time for joy and happiness, but there’s a sinister secret wrapped in the stories we tell. Douglas Walker unravels a shocking true story with his ingenious new comic play. An absurd and incredible one-man epic, encompassing a dizzying cast of characters spanning 100 years of history.

The only thing more devastating than finding out that Santa doesn’t exist is finding out that he does.
