WHAT:       The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens, 
and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord
By Scott Carter

Discord takes the third U.S. President, the author of A Christmas Carol, and the author of War and Peace, locks them in a room with ‘no exit’, and has them hash out their views of scripture and the true meaning of existence. A blistering battle of wits from Scott Carter, this perceptive new comedy examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.  

WHO:         Directed by Emily Scott Banks

WHEN:       Saturday, December 10                   (2pm-6pm)
                  Callbacks: Sunday, December 11      (6pm-8pm)

WHERE:     Addison Theatre Centre Boardroom
                  15650 Addison Road
                  Addison, TX 75001

ROLES: Seeking 3 actors for the following roles:

Thomas Jefferson – Male, forties. Tall, handsome, mild-mannered, graceful. A soft Southern accent. Aloof yet engaged. Humorless yet good-humored. Even-tempered yet iron-willed. A visionary with blind spots. A political pro who thought himself above politics. A reason-worshipping son of the Enlightenment who was not immune to the prejudices of his day. He was, at once, Sherlock Holmes, Ashley Wilkes and Spock.

Charles Dickens – Male, forties. Compact, vibrant. Original ambition was to be an actor. Later, after establishing himself as a writer, he became a performer. Indeed, his life was a performance. He was a spurting, spewing volcano, a bursting supernova, a Big Bang, bow-wow man-child who was as eccentric as any of his characters. He was, at once, Cyrano de Bergerac, Émile Zola and Oscar Jaffe.

Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy – Male, forties. Both soldier and saint, high birth gave him a God-like panorama. A complex curmudgeon (of equal parts self-confidence, self-doubt, and self-loathing) who dreamed of a simple, peaceful world where all would obey him. He was, at once, Marcel Proust, J.D. Salinger and Yosemite Sam.
