I've written a full-length two act comedy about Twain's life called Mark
Twain Interruption. I don't know if this is the kind of thing you're
looking for. It's full of interesting historical stuff, most of it true.
Some scenes, or even sequences of scenes bearing on a theme, could be
extracted and played by my actor friends, or we could do a reading, or
whatever you want. Just a suggestion, if this would help your project. . .
