Indian Springs Theatre Presents “Is He Dead?”

Tickets for Indian Springs’ upcoming production of Mark Twain’s Is He Dead? adapted by David Ives, are now available for advanced purchase online.

Richly intermingling elements of burlesque, farce, and social satire with a wry look at the world market in art, Is He Dead? centers on a group of poor artists in Barbizon, France, who stage the death of a friend to drive up the price of his paintings. What could possibly go wrong? Join us for hilarious absurdity on stage in the John Badham Theater!
