The Little Theatre of Alexandria (LTA) and The Art League announced the opening of their collaborative art exhibit inspired by Mark Twain’s witty comedy about the art world, Is He Dead?, running at The Little Theatre May 18-June 8, 2024. Twain’s satire about the actual 19th Century French artist Jean-Francois Millet serves as the backdrop for this exhibit, allowing artists to explore the intersection of art, humor and deception. The exhibit features a juried show of artwork by Alexandria artists, and can be seen in LTA’s “Green Room” and lobby throughout the run of Is He Dead?.  The art will be available for sale.

There will be a special reception in the Green Room at LTA open to the public featuring the artists and the actors on Sunday, June 2nd immediately following the matinee performance of the play. Is He Dead?, a comedy by Mark Twain adapted by David Ives, is produced by Eleanore Tapscott and directed by Joey Pierce. Tickets for Is He Dead? can be purchased either by calling LTA’s Box Office at 703-683-0496 or through LTA’s website (

The Play

The play Is He Dead? tells the tale of Jean-Francois Millet, a young painter of genius who is in love with Marie Leroux but in debt to a villainous art dealer, Bastien Andre. Millet is foreclosed on by Andre who threatens debtor’s prison unless Marie marries him! The artist realizes the only way he can pay his debt and keep Marie to himself is to die, as only dead artists achieve fame and fortune. Millet fakes his death and prospers, all while passing himself off as his own sister, the widow Tillou. Now a rich widow, Millet must find a way to get out of a dress, return to life, and marry Marie! Mon Dieu!
