*Semi-Finalist in the Minnesota Shorts Festival of Plays in 2012*

a sophisticated audience. Not for children, but very funny." (Martha Patterson, Playwright,

"With patrons’ eyes still aglow with laughter, Tobin and Wood donned Mr. and Mrs. Claus
outfits for
MRS. CLAUS GETS MENOPAUSE. Santa is preparing to make his Christmas
Eve run when Greta Claus reveals that she has been to see Hermey the dentist’s brother
Hymie, who’s training to be a gynecologist. Hysterical chaos erupts as Mrs. Claus
succumbs to a menopausal meltdown about rumors of Santa and one of his elves, being
left alone Christmas Eve and the fact that she will never have children. The audience
doubled over with laughter as Wood exclaimed to Tobin’s dumbfounded Santa, “Is it my
fault we haven’t done the Christmas Kringle in almost 20 years?” (April Boyle,
Press Herald, 2016)

"Your plays were the best at Christmas Shorts. Enjoyed them with an oversold-out house
today!" (G Mark Cole, Onstage Atlanta, 2011)

"Daniel, that play was so much fun. The performers were great, and you wrote a wonderful
script." (Noah Fredericks, KYRS Radio, 2014)
