Gentle readers! This week’s theater review for the LA Weekly is of Live! From the Last Night of My Life, now playing at Sacred Fools in East Hollywood.
A despondent fellow, Doug (Pete Caslavka), is disillusioned by how he has ended up, stuck in a depressingly menial job working the graveyard shift at a gas station’s convenience store. Packing a handgun, he decides to end it all at the conclusion of his shift at dawn. Throughout the night, Doug pontificates at length, recalling key episodes in his past, while playing to the security camera that his oppressive manager had installed.
