Twain is arguably our most famous American author and humorist. He was also an important and influential social icon. Timely Twain opens with the witty storyteller. Then we see him use his podium to deliver his wry political and social commentary. Finally, the numerous tragedies in his personal life appear to lead him to a darker, disappointed cynicism.
Samuel Clemens followed every personal tragedy with surges of creative energy and productivity. There’s no doubt he would have done so again but for an appointment with Halley’s Comet in 1910. With faith in Clemens’s indomitable nature, the playwright gives Captain Stormfield, Twain’s posthumous alter ego, the last word.
