Synopsis

Here is a fresh dramatization of Mark Twain's beloved tale of Tom Sawyer. As the title suggests, the play dramatically focuses on the inner conflict of Tom during one long summer ago. In a warm season of ripening, the boy proves his manhood and the man (played by a narrator of Mark Twain) relives his boyhood. Tom moves through the whitewash enterprise of work and play, the school whipping, establishing his bravery in the young world, the graveyard murder and the climactic trial which tests his courage in the old world of life and death itself. Along the way is the escape into the play world of Jackson Island and the happiest funeral in all literature as the "drowned" listen to their own eulogies.
