Based on a true story, actor/writer Doug Motel's one-man show brings us 11 colorful characters who take us on a hilarious and touching spiritual odyssey.

Shiva Arms debuted in LA where it won The Los Angeles Weekly Award for Best Solo Performance and the Theater LA Ovation award for Best Writing of a World Premiere Play.

Recently, Shiva Arms was featured in the United Solo Theatre Festival on Manhattan’s Theater Row, the largest one-person show festival in the world and has been seen all over the US and Europe.

Synopsis: Welcome to the Shiva Arms, the run-down apartment building that is home to the most dysfunctional group of tenants in all of Hollywood. Based on a true story, actor/writer Doug Motel’s tour-de-force brings us 11 colorful, 1980’s characters-from an angry GenX punk artist and a “B” movie actress to a crusty 86 yr. old retired negative cutter.

This band of misfits winds up taking us on a hilarious and touching spiritual odyssey.
