To Begin the World Over Again

Theatre, Drama
5 out of 5 stars
(2user reviews)
A one man show that sheds light on the largely forgotten, but nonetheless extraordinary Thomas Paine. His revolutionary ideas on slavery, democracy, equality and morality changed the world but died largely ignored.

I can't wait to see this show! My friends in California, Boston, and Philadelphia have been telling me about it. All very different people- male female, rich poor, diverse, told me they each enjoyed every moment of Ruskin's performance and would see it again in a heartbeat. GREAT it's coming to London.

I was lucky enough to see this play in Los Angeles. It was a wonderful performance by an actor more interested in conveying his subject than displaying ego. Heart and brain throughout; a teacher in the best sense. Ian Ruskin held the audience with his riveting portrayal, seen in the US nationwide to much acclaim London is in for a treat! Great Q & A afterward. Everyone left the theater enlightened and inspired. I would see this actor/ director in anything he was performing. I love the Paine quote: “My country is the world, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.”
