Is He Dead is a play written by Mark Twain and adapted by David Ives that focuses on a fictional version of the great French painter Jean-Francois Millet as an impoverished artist in Barbizon, France who, with the help of his colleagues, stages his death in order to increase the value of his paintings. Combining elements of burlesque, farce, and social satire, the comedy relies on such devices as mistaken identities and romantic deceptions to tell its story.
