Pay What You Can Wednesday night at H St Playhouse for Theatre Alliance's Night Before Christmas

On Wednesday night, Theater Alliance is hosting its first Pay-What-You-Can staged reading of the 2011-2012 season for "The Night Before Christmas" at the H Street Playhouse.

As the holiday season rapidly explodes into red-nosed Santas, singing angels, and frosty snowmen, Theater Alliance is thrilled to bring you a "wicked little comedy to warm the cockles of your heart." (The Guardian)

Acclaimed Scottish playwright Anthony Neilson pens this darkly hilarious adult holiday play.  Late on Christmas Eve, a burglar is caught breaking into a London warehouse.  He claims to work for the "International Gift Distribution Agency" as an...elf.  Hijinks ensue as they wait for the police to arrive. 

"A smutty, dangerously funny, but warm-hearted cri de coeur against the Christmas Industry." (The Stage)
