Is He Dead?

Is He Dead?
a new comedy by Mark Twain,
as adapted by David Ives

Directed by Janet Sales

This play received its world premiere on Broadway in 2007—and it’s a live one! Jean-François Millet, a brilliant but unrecognized painter, can’t sell a landscape to save his life (literally). His wacky bohemian friends convince him that faking his death is just the ticket for raising his stock. So Jean-François disappears from life and re-emerges as his imaginary twin sister. The scheme could make him rich, famous, and able to marry the girl of his dreams—if only he could be alive to enjoy it!
