Deep Dish Offers Discussion of Twain Book
Deep Dish Theater Company invites readers to join a lively, informal discussion of Mark Twain's "The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress" at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 2, at Flyleaf Books of Chapel Hill.
The conversation, led by Dr. Evelyn Daniel, is presented in conjunction with the theater's production of "Is He Dead?," Mark Twain's farce about art and life, adapted by David Ives.
It is free and open to the public, with no prior attendance or registration is required.
Published in 1869, "The Innocents Abroad, or The New Pilgrims' Progress" is a humorous chronicle of Mark Twain's 1867 steamship voyage to Europe, Egypt and the Holy Land, based on letters he wrote to newspapers. Part serious travel book and part honest reaction to the foreign scenes before his eyes, Twain critiques the various aspects of culture and society he witnesses on his trip in what became the best selling of his works during his lifetime.
