Doug Knott’s “Last of the Knotts” is a solo-performance, a novella come to life, and as in many novellas, it is a character’s journey to discover himself. Doug, our character, is on a quest to define himself as a man different from his Father. This leads him to believe that he does not want children. Our hero is not compelled by his Father; he is focused on the children he has not had, the Father he will not become. The long poem/dramatic monologue contemplates what gives and takes life, and who has the right to decide. Like all beliefs that our parents have instilled in us, Doug is not quite sure if his disbelief in family and children is the right belief. He questions it, but in the end, he cannot escape his decisions. The bittersweet story asks us to think about what it is that is handed down from parents to children, and is that more important than the act of giving life? Doug unties the knots in his heart in front of us, bravely and honestly, so that we can all laugh and untie a few of our own knots.
