  3. Is He Dead


A comedy by Mark Twain and adapted by David Ives.

Jean-Francois Millet, a young painter of genius, is in love with Marie Leroux but in debt to a villainous art dealer, Bastien Andre. Millet is foreclosed on by Andre who threatens debtor’s prison unless Marie marries him! The artist realizes the only way he can pay his debt and keep Marie to himself is to die, as only dead artists achieve fame and fortune. Millet fakes his death and prospers, all while passing himself off as his own sister, the widow Tillou. Now a rich widow, Millet must find a way to get out of a dress, return to life, and marry Marie! Mon Dieu!


Ages: This play includes adult themes (equivalent to a PG13 rating)
