A newly discovered masterpiece from the original master of comedy - Mark Twain. 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.
