Due to popular demand, Don Reed’s acclaimed autobiographical hit "The Kipling Hotel: The 80s" will transfer to The Marsh San Francisco. This 2017 Theatre Bay Area nominee for Outstanding Solo Performance invites audiences to 1980s Los Angeles, when Reed recounts the awkward adventures of the son of an Oakland pimp struggling through UCLA. The under-funded Reed scrambles to stay afloat with a variety of schemes, from serial party-hopping to stripping, before finally earning room and board by serving breakfast at an unforgettable retirement home on the rough side of town. "The Kipling Hotel" follows Reed’s hair-raising misadventures, and brings to vivid life the hotel’s exotic elderly denizens who impart their own brand of wisdom, as well as the earnest students, aspiring actors, and drug dealers, who are recruited to wait on them.
