Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn Script
This adaptation is a true telling of Huck's adventures and never strays far from Twain's original text. Designed to tour with a small cast, it plays equally well for larger companies who wish to flesh out roles. In this comedy, Huck Finn is a noted outcast. He has no mother, and his father is a hopeless drunkard. The Widow Douglas takes him in but he rejects her civilized world and runs away. On his epic journey down the Mississippi River with a runaway slave named Jim, Huck finds acceptance for the first time in his life. On this series of adventures he learns responsibility, awareness of equality, and the meaning of true friendship. Director's notes are available in the script containing full details of costumes, set, staging and props. Open space staging. Simple costumes. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
