Directing a play about Nikola Tesla…

A SPARK EXTINGUISHED by Steven Evanik

Tesla, Twain and Morgan meet in death to revisit the events surrounding the Wardenclyffe Tower project in 1901. The inventor’s tower promises to advance mankind a century, but threatens the banker’s societal ideals of order and control. A writer carefully tries to convey the truth while keeping two bitter foes at bay.

Come see a show that transforms Purgatory, with Tesla’s own invention (the Tesla coil) making a cameo on stage.
