Mark Twain's own words provide actor Richard Garey with plenty of picturesque prose. Mark Twain, aka author and humorist Samuel L. Clemens, arrives by riverboat to his childhood home in Hannibal, Missouri and deems the waterfront "the most beautiful on the Mississippi". He came home to Hannibal on several occasions and describes his waterfront hometown as he goes through humor while visiting some of Hannibal's most historic sites in addition to some of the community's 21st century experiences and attractions.

A talented and experienced actor with credits in over 40 states and Canada in a twenty year stage career, Garey explores many dimensions of the characters he creates.

Clemens, and is currently performing at the Planter's Barn Theater in Hannibal, Missouri.
