    "Strange Snow" & "The Eight Reindeer" Come To Chiang Mai


    "Strange Snow" and "The Eight" Reindeer come to Chiang Mai

    The Gate Theater, Chiang Mai's English language theater group to close out the year with a comedy and a drama.

    "The Eight" Reindeer Monologues
    Note: This play is intended for adult audiences only.

    As the title suggests, the play, written by Jeff Goode and directed by Stephan Turner, is a series of eight monologues, one from each of Santa's reindeer.

    Accusations, rumors and all-out attacks are flying fast and furious around Santa's toyshop this holiday season. What's the true story behind Rudolph's unlikely rise to fame? Does Mrs. Claus have a serious drinking problem? Can St. Nick himself really be guilty of sexual harassment... against one of the reindeer? And with all this going on, how can the spirit of Christmas be saved? Go behind the tinsel and hear the truth about Santa straight from the eight reindeer who know him best. When a doe says "No", she means "No Way, Sucka !"

    "This gut-bustlingly funny - and completely outrageous show, which is most definitely not for kids and should not be missed by adults, is shocking in a way theatre rarely is these days" --- The Boston Herald

    "hard-hitting in-your-face black comedy" ---Evening Post, Wellington, New Zealand

    "delightfully perverse" ---The Chicago Reader

    'The Eight' opens on November 27th with performances through the 30th with additional performances on December 21 through 24 and then on 26 to 28.
    All performances begin at 8:00 pm with doors and bar opening at 7:00 pm. Suggested donation is 250 bt.

    This show is being staged at ArtSpace on 7, located at 19/6 Sirimongalajahn Rd., behind the Lotus Pang Suan Kaew Hotel. For further information or reservations call The ArtSpace at 085-622-6607 or 084-041-7982.

    The Gate Theater Group proudly presents as its third and final production of 2008; Stephen Metcalfe's beautifully told, timely story of love, loss, healing and hope, Strange Snow.

    Under the direction of Stephan Turner, Strange Snow features performances by Robert Young, Nathan Kieffer, and Veronica Guarino. This performance is recommended for ages 15 and up.
    Strange snow falls on two young Vietnam veterans as they reunite for a fishing trip to make good on a long lost promise to an old friend.

    It's dawn on Opening Day and Megs shows up at his buddy David's house only to encounter David's shy, plain sister Martha. Megs' larger-than-life nature coaxes Martha out of her shell and into his heart. His mere presence, however, brings up painful memories of Vietnam for David, whose method of coping so far has been to drink too much and talk as little as possible.

    As a result of the play's success and popularity, it was developed into the major motion picture Jackknife, with the screenplay also by Stephen Metcalfe, starring Robert DeNiro, Kathy Baker and Ed Harris.

    The play opens December 5th and will run Fridays and Saturdays through December 20th, at the Studio Theater, 7th floor, Central Kad Suan Kaew shopping mall. Doors open at 7:00pm with curtain at 7:30 pm.

    Suggested donation 300 baht. For more reservations or more information write to

    Saw the Eight Reindeer Monologues last Sunday. Very funny, with slightly uneven performances though. Some standouts however. Well worth the 250 bt donation.
    Going to see Strange Snow opening night!
