Mavericks In Sheol

for solo flute and actor

In 1885, England made a new translation of the bible.

The word HELL was removed and replaced by the word SHEOL.

All of a sudden Thomas Paine was in very different company.

Age of Paine

a brand new play featuring the life and words of Thomas Paine

In Age of Paine, a new play by Dorothy Fennell you will meet the American Revolutionary hero,

Thomas Paine, as never before seen anywhere on the planet.  Condemned to death for sedition, one step ahead of the hang man, rotting away in a French prison, and writing the Age of Reason, Part II.  How does he do it? Where does he find the strength to press on with his one-man campaign to make common sense and reason the law of the land? And he’s singing! Even dead, he’s so controversial the Quakers won’t bury him.  Does Revolutionary hero Thomas Paine get a second chance?
