Living History: Mark Twain 2020, Nov. 5

Sunday, November 5, 3:00 pm, 60 min.

Portrayed by Rick Bonnette, Mark Twain’s Traveling Theatre

What if Mark Twain were alive today? One part campaign rally and one part rant, Mark Twain 2020 is a one-man show featuring Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain and his commentary on elections past and future.

Anchored by the campaign slogan, “You could do a lot worse!” Twain announces his candidacy for President of the United States in 2020. His political base—The Unreliables, as he fondly calls them, are certain to put him over the top (if they show up to vote). After all, “Hain’t we got all the fools in town on our side. And ain’t that a big enough majority in any town.” Tired of grand promises and feeble returns? Join Twain’s Army! Donate to his political action committee, or just show up to this campaign rally.
