WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The semi-autobiographical, solo show written and performed by poet/hipster Doug Knott and produced by Meadowbrook Entertainment. Doug endures a childhood of severe abuse by his alcoholic father, a Florida judge obsessed with his own legacy. To spite his father, Doug declares he will be the "Last Of The Knotts." He then embarks on a carefree life to avoid the bourgeois anchor of family. Set in exuberant, darkly permissive 1980's Los Angeles, this hour-long "comi-tragedy" shadows his search for redemptive love with an exotic woman who deals cocaine and keeps a pet 7-foot boa constrictor. When she unexpectedly gets pregnant, her desire to have a child provokes a conflict, and Doug must choose fatherhood.... or Knott.
