Nancy Churnin Recommends

Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Leo Tolstoy. Put three great thinkers (who know they’re great thinkers) in a room and what do you get? Find out in the regional premiere of 'The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens, and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord,' which imagines these men meeting in a Purgatory-like place where they hash out their differences about Scripture and the meaning of life. It’s written by Scott Carter, an executive producer on HBO’s 'Real Time With Bill Maher,' which gives him quite a bit of experience with sparring spirits. Emily Scott Banks directs Ian Ferguson as Jefferson, John-Michael Marrs as Dickens and Jeremy Schwartz as Tolstoy. Let the sparks and barbs fly.

A Founding Father, a Victorian novelist, and a Russian revolutionary walk into a… stop if you’ve heard this one. Join us for a laugh-out-loud, whip-smart new comedy as Discord takes the third U.S. President, the author of A Christmas Carol, and the author of War and Peace, locks them in a room with no exit, and has them hash out their views of scripture and the true meaning of existence. A blistering battle of wits from Scott Carter, executive producer of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, this perceptive new comedy examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.
