Based on the stories by Mark Twain. This collection provides an evening's entertainment, but individual selections can easily be performed independently. "The 1,000,000 Bank Note" (two acts for 5m/5w, 60 minutes) features two wealthy British siblings who bet whether a destitute man can survive a month in London if they give him a £1,000,000 bank note, which he can neither account for being in his possession, nor turn into cash. Two one-act plays, "The Facts Concerning the Recent Carnival of Crime in Connecticut" (1m/2w, 20 minutes) and "An Encounter With an Interviewer" (1m/1w, 10 minutes) have Mark Twain himself as the central character, highlighting his wry sense of humor. In addition, two monologues are included to allow an actor and actress to take on challenging characters. In "A True Story Repeated Word for Word as I Heard It" (1w, 10 minutes), a former slave talks about the joys and troubles in her life. "The Undertaker's Chat" (1m, 5 minutes) presents unique views of life and death from someone who has seen a lot of both.
