Huckleberry in Love

Huckleberry in Love $10.99

Michael Johnson from Mark Twain & William Shakespeare

Published by Dramatic Publishing

Large Mixed Cast
Huckleberry in Love tells of two crazily star-crossed lovers and proves that love's cosmic lightning can cleave the most unlikely hearts ...

Huck Finn, river-rat son of a drowned deadbeat drunk

And Miss Petunia Pringle, 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

Then on 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 others are all right here where we left them - in the romantic wilds of our own hearts and minds

Flexible set - runs about 2 hours
