Ian Ruskin
To Begin the World Over Again: The Life of Thomas Paine

Was Thomas Paine “one of the most brilliant minds in human history” or merely a “filthy little atheist”? He was certainly one of the most misunderstood men in American history.

In a special play presentation, writer and actor Ian Ruskin captures the living essence of our nation’s brilliant, fiery and most radical Founding Father In a one-man show, To Begin the World Over Again: the Life of Thomas Paine.


This play, written with a COLA Fellowship, takes you on an extraordinary journey of revolutions and of a world looking to new ideas of freedom and democracy and above all, justice and equality.

Ruskin has worked extensively in theater, television and film in England and Los Angeles. His life-long interest in social justice led him to found The Harry Bridges Project in 2000. He has gone on to produce, write and narrate two radio documentaries, the one-man play From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Docks (and co-producing the film version that Haskell Wexler directed), and wrote and produced other plays and documentary films.

    Engrossing; a very well-done show!

    Hosts can change their rsvp to no. It's just basic courtesy to not mislead newcomers. Some have been disappointed.

    Stu, it's the website default host. It has nothing to do with reality. All Meetup.com groups have default names for host, whether they are hosting or not. - Gary

    Why does this group have a policy of advertising phony event hosts who won't host or even attend?
