Opening March 31 The Gospel According To Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens, And Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord By Scott Carter “I preferred morals to mysteries.” Three of the world’s greatest writers, Jefferson, Dickens, and Tolstoy all edited or adapted The Bible to suit their own views, and they just might have to pay for that! The dialogue and the ideas soar, as you might expect from these three, in this sizzlingly clever comedy. Playwright Scott Carter will be joining us for special events– stay tuned for more details!
