Is he Dead?

by Mark Twain

Adapted by David Ives

November 6 - 22, 2009

Directed by Joseph Hammond

An impoverished artist in 1860’s France stages his death in order to increase the value of his paintings. Combining elements of burlesque, farce, and social satire, this hilarious comedy uses cross-dressing, mistaken identities, and romantic deceptions to raise questions about fame, greed, and the value of art.

"A ripely enjoyable confection! An elaborate madcap comedy that registers high on the mirth meter and reaches especially giddy comic heights!" --David Rooney, Variety.

 "Relentlessly funny, this is a show for all ages and for all tastes… All you need to enjoy it is the ability to laugh." Jacques Le Sourd, The Journal News.
