Synopsis

A story to prove that love's cosmic lightning can cleave the most ornery of hearts, Huckleberry in Love tells of two crazily star-crossed lovers, Huck Finn (the river-rat son of a drowned deadbeat drunk) and Petunia Pringle (the befreckled bookworm daughter of an eminent St. Louis judge). Filled with dialogue peppered with the colloquialisms of Mark Twain and woven with the jewels of Shakespeare, the play follows Huck's odyssey into first love, from his meeting with his "Juliet" at the Sunday-school picnic (his pockets bulging and croaking with bullfrogs) to the balcony scene in a thunderstorm on the thatched roof of a chicken coop to the climactic struggle between the big Ol' Muddy that beckons to his interminable wanderlust and the beautiful young woman on the bank who has given him her heart. Huck, Tom Sawyer, Aunt Polly, Jim, the widow Douglas and the rest are all right here where we left them—in the romantic wilds of our own hearts.
