Thomas Jefferson, Leo Tolstoy, and Charles Dickens walking into a room in the Afterlife sounds like the start of a joke. And there are laughs aplenty in the play "Discord," which I saw last night at Red Herring Theater.
Yet in spite of "Discord's" premise, and its laughs, I can't exactly call it a comedy. In fact, I don't want to say much more, as the individual theater goer really should discover the play's combination of humor and poignancy for themselves.
