Is He Dead?

Written by Mark Twain, as adapted by David Ives

Reports of Mark Twain's death have been greatly exaggerated! Set in 19th century Paris, this newly discovered comedy is the story of a struggling artist who stages his own death in order to drive up the price of his paintings. As the rollicking scheme unfolds, Twain poses questions about fame, greed and the value of art, and wields the wit and wisdom which have long been the hallmark of this American master of humor.

Opening Night: Friday, September 11, 2009 - Closing Night: Saturday, September 26, 2009
