TJ Dawe's The Slipknot is a spellbinding comic monologue, by turns hysterical and heartbreaking, frantic and thoughtful.

Journey back with the speaker to dead-end jobs of his youth: driving a giant truck, working phones for the postal service, and being a drugstore stockboy.

Performed by theater simple co-founder, Andrew Litzky, and directed by longtime simpleton and artistic associate K. Brian Neel, The SLIPKNOT brims with observations, both wise and outlandish: ~on long-distance relationships, ~ the history of Santa Claus, ~ recreational dramamine, and why you should never EVER mail meat, no matter what the clerk at the 7-11 tells you.
