“Dear Santa,

I have been deeply concerned over the last few years in the lack of variety in your gifts. Last year my 6-year-old daughter received three pairs of multi-coloured ‘f**k me’ high heels and my son yet another toy gun. I’m sure your decision to stop producing gifts in your workshop is based on sound financial planning, but where is the Christmas spirit?

Awaiting your response with excitement and anticipation,

Gary”

Santa: A Very Merry Businessman is the first stage in a series of SANTA works – a provocation exploring gender and capitalism. Were you disappointed with last year’s gifts? Perhaps you have a question regarding Santa’s ethics? Whatever your complaint, simple or profound, please email santa@off-the-rails.org.uk – who knows, you may even get a reply…
