THE SANTA CLOSET, the critically acclaimed solo play from New York writer-performer Jeffrey Solomon, tells the story of Gary, a little boy who writes to Santa Claus for a doll, receives a truck instead, and pens a heart-rending letter to the North Pole that stirs the great Holiday Icon’s soul, pushing him out of the closet and into the culture wars.

A theatrical documentarian inspired by Anna Deveare Smith and the Laramie Project, Mr. Solomon purports to have interviewed, and portrays, all of the key figures in the “Santa-gate” scandal, including little gay Gary, his confused mom and angry dad, Santa’s fake-actress wife, his Agent, his one true love, Giovanni Geppetto (a descendent of Pinocchio) and Mary Ellen Banfield, a conservative activist who is fighting to institute a Santa NO FLY ZONE. The Santa Closet was inspired by the national movement to speak honestly and openly to children about LGBT lives and issues, and the conservative backlash.
