Hes done what most playwrights have only dreamed ofbecome a critics darling, a multi-award winner (including LA Weeklys prize for Best Solo Performance) and hes done it all on his own. Doug Motels previous one-man act, Shiva Arms, won him massive acclaim so theres considerable excitement surrounding his latest work. An autobiography, StarDUST, (Adventures in Consciousness) is a collection of stories Motel spent most of his life trying to forget. Rife with humiliation and hilarity, this writer/actor brings his tales alive without the need for frilly props and lavish sets; just a man on a stage.
