Synopsis

This version is a dramatization of selected scenes from Mark Twain's classic of Huck Finn's story. It depicts his escape from his drunken father and how he befriends a runaway slave. Huck Finn's Story is an adventure tale of excitement and suspense, delightfully sprinkled with home-spun humor. In six action-filled scenes, alive with colorful characters and sparkling dialog in rural dialect, the play reveals Huck, a clever, lovable boy who is baffled by the greed, hypocrisy and absurdity of society. His conscience troubles him about what is wrong and what is right, during his long journey down the Mississippi, a journey in which he "grows up." Keeping faithfully to the book, Harris, with his celebrated mastery of playwriting, has written for young audiences a great American play about the great American novel.
