In this one-man play, Ian Ruskin, an actor trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, brings Thomas Paine back to life. In 1775, Paine, a man who had lived 37 remarkably unremarkable years in England, arrived in Philadelphia. He then proceeded to change the world. His pen ignited the American Revolution, defined the French Revolution and articulated the concept of Reason. His vision of true justice and equality for all human beings still inspires millions of people and his ideas, revolutionary in 1776, are revolutionary today. The performance will be followed with a Q&A. Now, more than ever, we need to hear the words and vision of Thomas Paine!
