Polar Twilight, a holiday comedy in one act by Hillary DePiano


Polar Twilight coverEverything you think you know about Santa Claus is wrong and the truth kind of… sucks.

When three candidates are called to interview at the North Pole, they’re expecting to find a dream job gift wrapped for them. But once they meet Big Red himself, they start to realize that everything we think we know about the holiday isn’t just wrong… the truth is downright scary. But even if this revelation has sucked all the life out of the legend, the alternative is worse. What would happen if everyone knew? Could this be the end of Christmas as we know it? Santa Claus has a real PR problem and, to save the yuletide, they’ll need to help him keep up this Christmas conspiracy.
