Last Thursday afternoon, "Mark Twain" (actor Richard Clark) made a stop on his speaking toru at Union Hall for the Council on Agin's Annual Town Employee Appreciation Luncheon.

It was hard to imagine that this beloved humorist was not alive and well right here in Carlisle, even thoug he died almost one hundred years ago. Clark's one-man play of the wit, wisdom, and humorous storytelling of Mark Twain kepth the audience spellbound. t one point in the performance, "Twain" read an excerpt from his novel Huckleberry Finn , quickly transforming into young Huck. "Twain" also touched upon the social issues of slavery, parental abandonment, and the struggles young Huck had in dealing with these issues.

It became apparent that Clark is no ordinary actor, and that his acting prowess and knowledge of the life of Mark Twain enabled him to convey why Samuel Clemens was such a legent in his time. Clark enabled us to step bck to a time when our country as experiencing great social issues, including slavery, ccivil war, and pokitical changes that would change the course of American History. This was n engaging and well-done performance.
