Is He Dead?

Is He Dead?

  • By Mark Twain in 1898.
  • Adapted for the stage by David Ives in 2007.

In this newly discovered Mark Twain comedy, the original master of American humor dishes out a sly critique of the art world with acerbic wit and social commentary well ahead of his time. Is He Dead? is a fast-paced play about a struggling artist who stages his own death to drive up the price of his paintings. As the riotous scheme unfolds, Twain poses daring questions about fame, greed, and the value of art, and pokes his signature, mischievous fun at everyone involved.
