WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Lock three men in a room and God knows what will happen...
Thomas Jefferson (Larry Cedar), Charles Dickens (David Melville) and Count Leo Tolstoy (Armin Shimerman) find themselves locked in a room together, and life, art, religion and politics get vigorously debated as if their souls depend on it. Because they do. This provocative and funny world premiere play is a fascinating insight into the spiritual lives of three of the greatest minds that ever lived. And, if these great men get second thoughts about their lives, what hope have the rest of us?
