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.
