In Robert Ingersoll’s words:
“If a man would follow, today,  the teachings of the Old Testament, he would be a criminal,  If a man would follow strictly the teachings of the New, he would be insane.”

“It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education, than to have education without common sense.”

About the Play:

A two-act comedy-drama by Richard F. Stockton, revised by Marsha Lee Sheiness, SPEAK OF THE DEVIL is based on the life of the 19th century "Great Agnostic", Robert Ingersoll. The play encourages people to lead active, thoughtful, responsible and independent lives, rejecting interference from a religious right committed to insinuating ideology into politics, civil rights, education, our health care systems, and our daily lives. SPEAK OF THE DEVIL dramatizes what happens when a man, rich with native wit, robust humor, love of family and extreme courage, refuses -- at risk to himself and those he holds dear -- to neither put a padlock on his tongue, nor shackles on his brain.

SPEAK OF THE DEVIL is a call for conscientious, caring decisions, not only for ourselves but for society at large.
