GRANT & TWAIN... a new play by Elizabeth Diggs
GRANT & TWAIN tells the story of a remarkable friendship. At age 62, Ulysses Grant is bankrupted in a Wall Street swindle. His only hope to restore his honor and save his family is an offer to write his memoirs of the war.
News of Grants calamity brings his friend Mark Twain to his side. Twain is infuriated by the terms offered by the prestigious publisher. He makes an audacious proposal: he himself will publish Grants book and make it the biggest bestseller in American history. When Grant finally agrees, he is faced with a double enemy he is diagnosed with terminal cancer and writes in a race with death, and he discovers an enemy close to home.
