Le Père Noel est une ordure is a brilliant black comedy, juggling high farce and grotesque black humour. The farce is filled with an assortment of eccentrics including a lonely Serbian with deadly chocolates, a cross-dressing chronic depressive and a suicidal gun-toting Santa Claus. The play is a wild, aggressive, furiously paced and absolutely hilarious beast, dealing with loneliness, heart-ache, and people on the edge of insanity.
The time is now. The location is every city. Specifically, a lifeline agency, a place of refuge for those lost and without hope. It is Christmas Eve … and the mayhem begins
