Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you would enjoy juxtaposing the words and thoughts of two very different historical figures with keen insight and performance by one person.

Don't see it if you are looking for a complete biography of with person or characters playing them and interacting-this is written and acted by one person.
