Mark Twain's IS HE DEAD? is a wild farce that invents an irreverent, fast-paced story around the real painter Jean-François Millet. Millet can’t sell a single painting to save his life. Literally. Facing debtor's prison, Millet and his ragtag group of friends come up with an outrageous solution: fake Millet's death to increase the value of his paintings—and continue life disguised as his "sister," the Widow Tillou!

Romantic deceptions, absurd situations, and corset-busting wit make IS HE DEAD? a hilarious romp that will catch modern audiences by surprise. RATING: PG
