Three of the modern era's most fascinating personalities -- Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, Victorian novelist Charles Dickens and Russian revolutionary Count Leo Tolstoy -- are brought together in a blistering battle of wits for the ages in Discord. From Scott Carter (executive producer of Real Time with Bill Maher) comes this whip-smart new comedy that examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it. Called "funny and thought-provoking" by the Los Angeles Times, the play takes the form of a meticulously -- and hilariously -- crafted debate among Jefferson (Larry Cedar), Dickens (David Melville) and Tolstoy (Armin Shimerman), who find themselves locked in an interrogation room until they can reconcile their vastly opposing theological differences.

I purchased two tickets for my Aunt and friend. I had attended the production two weeks prior. I wanted to gift my awesome experience to my loved ones.
I received a phone call immediately after they walked out of the performance. They were joyously emphatic and singing high praises! "The actor was amazing, each character well thought out and expressed, the wonderful costumes transcended you to another era and journey". Yes, I quoted them. hahaha They went on and on. LOL The best gift I have ever giving!
What a great experience for all. ITS A MUST SEE!

“I just saw this great performance, Oh, Yes She Did by Sandy Brown, covering important African American women throughout history. It was quite incredible. I’ve always been an avid supporter of civil rights and this performance has only strengthened my feminist and egalitarian beliefs. I now have a huge list of books to read by Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, and many others. It will probably take me years to read them all, but that’s a price I’m all too willing to pay. So I say: “Power to the people!!!” —Feminist Humor Blog
