Don Reed's East 14th: True Tales of a Reluctant Player returns to The Marsh Berkeley. This hilarious and poignant solo show tells the autobiographical story of Reed's boyhood in 1970s Oakland. He grew up torn between his strict, churchgoing mother's upbringing and his admiration for his enigmatic father -- who happened to be a pimp. An off-Broadway hit, East 14th was nominated for two 2008 NAACP Theatre Awards. Reed has performed, written and directed in film, television and theater across the country and was the longtime opening act/warm-up comedian for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Learn More
