Production Description
From Scott Carter, Executive Producer of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” this timely New York Premiere finds three of history’s most famous men, all of whom wrote their own version of the gospels, debating everything from religion to literature to marriage in this “hugely entertaining, rapid-fire” (Chicago Sun-Times) new play. Thomas Jefferson (author of the Declaration of Independence), Charles Dickens (the man who brought us A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist) and Count Leo Tolstoy (the epic Russian novelist of War & Peace fame) are trapped in a limbo where each believes their path to salvation depends on convincing the other two that they are wrong. Kimberly Senior, the acclaimed director of Chris Gethard’s Career Suicide and the Tony-nominated Disgraced, will helm this profound and exciting battle of truly biblical proportions.
