T.R. meets Twain at River Stage

From River Stage

River Stage presents
The Playwright's Festival of New Works
T.R. and Twain: Luncheon at the White House , a staged reading
Written by Frank Denson and Alan Freeman
Directed by Frank Condon

"T.R. AND TWAIN: Luncheon at the White House" explores an actual meeting at the White House between President Theodore Roosevelt and Samuel Clemens. These two gigantic egos at the turn of the twentieth century admired each other but epitomized opposite political viewpoints.

The two men roast each other over the issues of the day, which surprisingly parallel our own time: foreign wars, torture of prisoners, US expansionism, financial collapse, government regulation, and especially race relations, civil rights, social injustice, and the Civil War.
Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and students.

Presentations Friday, July 31 and Saturday August 1
