Weis & Hickman Roadshows

Beginning with Gencon 1984 and for a number of years thereafter, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman produced a series of events at the convention entitled the ‘Weis & Hickman Travelling Roadshow. These generally featured a skit authored by Tracy Hickman, Q&A sessions with Weis and Hickman as well as performances from their works. These performances sometimes were choral readings and sometimes performances cast from friends, spouses and associates.

Recordings of these performances are rare.

This performance, preserved from a VHS copy, took place at the Gencon Convention in 1990.
