Jim Loucks' rollicking solo performance draws on his Southern childhood to tell the story of a small-town policeman, loosely based on his Granddaddy, haunted by his shooting of a black man in the line of duty. As he nears the end of his life, he seeks redemption through teaching his grandson to respect life and to respect himself. Winner- "Best Solo Performance"- Tucson Fringe 2017.

“Loucks has the master storyteller’s art locked.” CRITIC’S PICK Cincinnati CityBeat

“Loucks displays great breadth in his acting, as he skillfully slips under the skins of six different characters, imbuing each one with their own intonations, postures and characteristics.” Charleston Post and Courier

“Loucks is an excellent performer, and theatergoers should watch for him in any future shows. The Biscuiteater is recommended for all.” Central Texas Live Theatre

"A powerful piece about guns, death, and dignity." Arts in LA
