Set during the time that Lee Harvey Oswald was held in the custody of the Dallas police, this new play takes a sideways look at a major turning point in American history. Christian Levatino's docudrama takes place in an office within police headquarters where homicide Captain William J. Fritz is given the task of interrogating Oswald. With the nation waiting for answers, the two discuss Van Heflin, Russia, Coca-Cola, Jim Brown, the AFL, backyard photographs and that Friday afternoon in Dealy Plaza. The play won Best of Fringe Extensions at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival, as well as receiving a nomination for the Playwriting O Face Award. Learn More

A carefree LA hipster is faced with life's ultimate choice -- fatherhood: to have or have Knott.
Doug Knott, a carefree LA hipster, and son of redneck Tallahassee patriarch, Judge Knott, finds himself on the horns of a dilemma. To be or not to be: a father. Having taken enough lifelong shit from the abusive Judge, Doug aims his metaphorical gun at his father and says, "No way. I am the last of the Knotts." Then he thinks twice! This is Knott a comedy.
