Jamaica, Farewell returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse after successful runs all over the world. Debra Ehrhardt's solo show is based on a mostly true story about her journey to the U.S. from Jamaica in the turbulent 1970s of the Manley era. When Ehrhardt was an 18-year-old secretary in Kingston, she and her passion for America bumped into a handsome CIA agent over a bowl of oxtail soup. She decides to squeeze through the pinhole of opportunity with the help of this love-struck American. Her way out of Jamaica is blocked by many obstacles: an alcoholic father, a Bible-spouting mother, the price of airfare, and U.S. government suspicions. Nevertheless, she begins a dangerous adventure that only the single-minded passion of a teenage girl would chance. The boundary between bravery and foolishness becomes blurred as she grows more desperate. When she agrees to smuggle a million dollars in cash to a mysterious contact somewhere in Miami, the agent becomes her unwitting accomplice. Every part is played by NAACP Award winner Ehrhardt, an actress capable of amazing mimicry. This one-woman caper's got generous dollops of humor, laughter and light. Jamaica, Farewell has been optioned for film by a major Hollywood producer. Learn More

Charming Karen Knotts shares amusing and informative anecdotes about growing up with her beloved late father Don Knotts, delivered in a casual, intimate style. Her solo show is enhanced by still photos and archival videos shown on the large screen. Karen has a keen sense of character and comic talent for portraying various people from her life, using a colorful array of hats from two hatracks onstage.

We thought the show was very entertaining and Karen Knotts did a great job telling her story about her life growing up with her Dad. She was very candid and forthcoming and even vulnerable at times. SHe is a very talented lady in her own right!
