Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy find themselves locked in a room with no exit. The brisk and poignant romp of these men yields blistering battle of whip-smart comedy.

Thomas Jefferson, (yes, the Founding Father), Charles Dickens (yes, the Victorian novelist) and Count Leo Tolstoy (yes, the Russian revolutionary) find themselves locked in a room with no exit. Attempting to discern why they are in this room together, they ransack the philosophies of their lives and work, searching for a truth; why us?  And why, in God's name, together?!

"Discord" wades through life's most primal, perplexing concepts (morality, mortality, etymology) from the prism of these great, but decisively human, thinkers. Throughout their lives, Tolstoy, Jefferson, and Dickens made decisions that directly contradicted with the morals they propagated. On top of their individual achievements, they succumbed to infidelity, remained materialistic, and acted selfishly.

At once uproarious, raw and painfully honest, "Discord" unveils the many virtues and vices of these towering icons and discovers a universal truth: no human is human without flaws.
