About this show

What do you do when your mother divorces your father, then remarries a devout follower of "that religion," who takes you door-knocking at 7 o'clock in the morning? You escape and move in with dear old dad of course. Problem solved. Until you discover your real pop is a real pimp...for real. East 14th: True Tales of a Reluctant Player is the hysterical one-man show chronicling Don Reed's true coming-of-age story in 1970s Oakland. From being forced to deliver the gospel door to door, to living on "Ho Row", Don Reed takes you down a road you'll never forget. At times moving and poignant, but always funny to the core, East 14th: True Tales of a Reluctant Player will make you laugh until you cry, and then laugh all over again.
