When an unemployed slacker signs on as a Yuletide elf at Macy’s, a village of candy-caned kids and cynical Santas springs to hilarious, if humiliating, life.

Crumpet the Elf is back for another round of best-selling author David Sedaris’ sardonic comedy. This wry tale is based on the outlandish, and true, chronicles of Sedaris’ brief stint as an elf in Macy’s Herald Square SantaLand display. His hysterical, behind-the-scenes anecdotes are a holiday treat for adults, mercilessly cutting through the sticky-sweetness of Christmas to illuminate the insanity of the holidays, and the resilience of the human spirit.
