Fat Man Crying
Joseph Scrimshaw's new production company, Joking Envelope, presents the return of the holiday hit! A depressed Santa Claus breaks into the home of a happily married couple on Christmas Eve! Can the couple save Santa or will he destroy the marriage by telling the couple where they fit on his naughty and nice list? Fat Man Crying is a two act comic play described by City Pages as "smart, well-crafted and funny...an intriguing take on holiday shows!" and named by tcdailyplanet.net as "one of the top ten shows of the year"! Fat Man Crying questions what we value more--knowledge or belief? Are there some things about our loved ones we just plain don't want to know? Is it really the thought that counts? What would you do if Santa really visited you?
