The Mark Twain House & Museum, Live Performance

October 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

On Thursday, October 19th, the Mark Twain House & Museum & SeaTea improv will be heating up the chilly autumn night with R-Rated Twain. Featuring some of Mark Twain’s spiciest, salacious and shocking works that span topics not fit to print (or even say in public). Included in the naughty hilarity is a short comedy Mark Twain: Ladies Man by playwright David Ryan Polgar. Be prepared to blush, leave the kids at home and wash your ears out with soap!

This ADULTS-ONLY show will take the audience through the naughtiest puns, poems, parodies, and passages that Mark Twain wrote. Suffice to say the material covered by Twain in these writins is not suitable for most publications, family audiences or polite society.
This event is also the FINAL of the head-to-head battles in our “Hartford on the Rocks” mixology competitions. All attendees will be able to taste both cocktails created especially for this competition. The winner will be announced at the end of the event. Additional drinks and snacks can be purchased from the bar.

October 19 • 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm $35
