Doug Sample has decided to end it all ... but not before getting a few things off his chest. This is the riveting premise behind Live! From the Last Night of My Life, the hilarious and thought-provoking play from Wayne Rawley (Beating Up Bachman). A series of poor choices and bad luck has put Sample behind the counter of the Gas and Get. There, while slaving his way through the graveyard shift, he's visited by old girlfriends, muses over the cultural significance of John Travolta and boogies with some Solid Gold dancers. But, in the end, will Sample survive the difficulties of his convenience store life? Sacred Fools Theater presents the West Coast premiere of this powerful play, a finalist for the Kennedy Center's David Mark Cohen National Playwriting Award. Learn More

This show was hilarious and worth absolutely every penny. An awful, awful screenplay sets the stage for this prodution in which stage directions are read by a Masterpiece Theatre-like host while the cast hams it up through the terrible dialogue, grammatical and spelling errors untouched. This show was enough to get me on board for all their future shows.
Hundreds of untrained writers from around the world send their unsolicited, unregistered scripts to Hollywood production companies in the hopes that their story will rise above the rest to be made into a feature film. Most never even get read... until now. Magnum Opus Theatre presents an unbelievably awful screenplay, compressed but otherwise unaltered... word for word.
