    "The Way of Twain" - by Mark Daniel Wilkinson is a new one man show that shares an intimate look at Mark Twain. Let’s travel over a hundred years back and experience this American icon as he lectures and entertains. Mark Twain has been called America's first stand up comic. His amazing wisdom and perception of the human condition will challenge us to look deep at ourselves. His wit leave’s us crying with laughter and his candid orneriness left no room for the political correctness of today. His voice a century ago is equally as contemporary as if he spoke yesterday. The Way of Twain is a fun, captivating, must see observation of the duality of man.

    Mark Daniel Wilkinson has over thirty years of theatre experience and is a graduate of the prestigious "American Academy of Dramatic Arts". Mark says "The Way of Twain has a twofold purpose for me, one it allows me to share my craft at a level that all actors strive to achieve, that connection of spirit and characterization when you are in the zone and everything lines up, that nirvana, when attained, is the greatest feeling in the world. And number two The Way of Twain will entertain and enlighten all ages. When I wrote this I wanted to take some of Twain's most recognized quotes, and not so recognized quotes, some familiar and unfamiliar stories personalize them and embrace the audience in such a way as to experience a close and personal observation of Mark Twain".
