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.
