Fat Man Crying

The hit holiday show returns for its second year!   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...finely pitched comedy" 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?


Written and directed by King of Comedy(MN Monthly)
and Fringe Favorite (Pioneer Press) Joseph Scrimshaw!

Starring Brave New Workshop alum Tim Uren as Santa!

Featuring Ivey Award Winner Matt Rein and Four Humors Theater alum Katie Hartman!

And Joseph Scrimshaw as Santas mysterious arch-enemy, Dave!
