These two literary giants approached their craft in surprisingly similar ways. Author and former spy Plame will play the MC of the evening, Richards is Shakespeare, and Martin appears as Twain.The cast includes Nicholas Ballas, Leslie H. Dillen, Bryson Hatfield, Geoffrey Pomeroy, and Tallis Rose with original music by Tom Collins.
This event is a benefit for KSFR and will be followed by a panel discussion.
