EnvisioningMoreCelebrating Mark Twains little-known (and long-suppressed) gender-bending feminist fiction, this play brings three of his controversial short stories to the stage!

The action revolves around Twains 1002nd Arabian Night (1883). Envisioning Scherezade and King Shahiyar the next day, Twain explores what happens when a boy is raised as a girl, and a girl is raised as a boy! Scherezade also narrates two other Twain yarns - Wapping Alice (1898) and How Nancy Jackson Married Kate Wilson (1902), which deal with the taboo topic of same-sex unions.

Disguised as comedies, these three one-act plays reveal Twains closeted past as a radical feminist theorist, destabilizing biological categories by suggesting that gender is a performance.
