The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens, and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord
January 10 – January 27
Comedy – Regional Premiere – A Founding Father, a Victorian literary celebrity, and a Russian aristocrat/anarchist clash in a provocative new comedy that pits three of the world’s greatest minds against each other in a battle of wits and wills. Jefferson, Dickens, and Tolstoy find themselves locked in a room with no exit. Attempting an escape, they ransack the philosophies of their lives and work, searching for a truth that will set them free. From playwright and former stand-up comedian Scott Carter (writer of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher), this whip-smart comedy examines just what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.
