Discovered and published in 2003, Is He Dead?, in a new adaptation by America's funniest contemporary playwright, David Ives, tells the farcical tale of a painter who fakes his death and disguises himself as his sister. As a dead painter, his works are more valuable than when he was alive. But when he falls in love, can he somehow resurrect himself to marry his true love and collect the fortune due to him? Comic twists abound in this resurrected comic delight.
