Nancy Churnin Recommends

It's hard to keep up with the formidable individual intellects of Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens or Leo Tolstoy. Which makes it fun to see them spar with each other about the meaning of this world and the next. Playwright Scott Carter, best known as executive producer of HBO's 'Real Time with Bill Maher' offers a smart and searching theatrical journey in this regional premiere. As with the three flawed characters in Jean Paul Sartre's 'No Exit,' they're trapped in a purgatory-like room. But while each have sins to confess, they also bring important ideas about ethics and faith, with each having something to teach as well as learn.

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.
