Now playing at Washington Stage Guild, thru April 24-- The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens, and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord. 

All positive reviews --

"Directed here by Washington Stage Guild artistic director Bill Largess, and featuring a trio of able comic performances, the production will particularly entertain recovering English and comparative literature majors, lovers of Founding Fathers minutiae, and people who have brooded over what makes a fulfilling and ethical life." - Washington Post

"The interaction of the three men is lively, entertaining, and occasionally funny as they spar over everything from the meaning of life to who was more famous." - DC Metro Theatre Arts

"Peter Boyer’s Dickens was an energetic force, full of both opinions and of himself. As Dickens the entertainer, his version of the gospel mined the grandeur of the story, the majesty of the occasion" .... "The production, directed by director Bill Largess is nimble and at times crackles." - MD Theatre Guide

"Washington Stage Guild gives it a solid production, thanks mostly to the actors who (we imagine) nail their historical figures." - Broadway World
