The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord
Extended through Sunday, July 9, 2017

A Founding Father, a Victorian literary celebrity, and a Russian aristocrat/anarchist clash in a provocative new comedy that sets three of the world's greatest thinkers 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. James Ijames directs a cast that includes Andrew Criss as Count Leo Tolstoy, Gregory Isaac as Thomas Jefferson, and Brian McCann as Charles Dickens.  more
