Thomas Paine’s To Begin the World Over Again
Written and performed by Ian Ruskin. With Elliott Gould as the narrator’s voice.
Leaping from the stage, delighting audiences in America, English actor Ian Ruskin’s acclaimed one-man play brings Thomas Paine home to Diss. Paine changed the world with his wit and vision, sparking the American and French Revolutions. He was one of the world’s greatest writers and worst politicians. Would it prove deadly?
“It’s performance art…nuanced and layered, enlightening….it’s as if Paine has been brought to back life just to speak to us.” Showmag, Los Angeles
