After nearly dying from chronic asthma, veteran TV producer Scott Carter went on a journey of faith via playwrighting. Twenty-seven years later, after briefly leaving his work with host/comedian Bill Maher to help raise his daughters, Carter has brought the theological but fanciful work, "Discord," to the stage.

The play imagines Thomas Jefferson, Count Leo Tolstoy, and Charles Dickens in purgatory discussing the Bible, each of which these men rewrote.
