Michael Graves stars as the departed Samuel L. Clemens in One Armed Man’s production of The Report of My Death, about the Lilac Steamship. Mark Twain said that people cannot be completely honest until after they’re dead, and this play takes him at his word — with the deceased great writer saying anything he wants. Featuring rare, previously censored and posthumously published Twain letters, stories, and historical artifacts, this one-man docudrama follows Clemens from his bankruptcy through his worldwide lecture tour, personal tragedies, unlikely recovery, and his fiery opposition to the Philippine-American War. This production introduces audiences the “other” Sam Clemens – American radical and dark prophet.
