About the Event:

by Peter Parnell

A mock-epic comic fantasia of America in 1876, its centennial year.  Huck Finn enlists Walt Whitman in a cross-country search for Tom Sawyer. On their journey they encounter Louisa May Alcott, who is carrying on an affair with the ghost of Henry David Thoreau at Walden Pond.  Walt and Huck next ride a raft on the Concord River, which despite its actual geography carries them west across the whole country. On their trip west they meet a parade of 19th-Century literary figures, including Emily Dickinson, who is living among the Sioux in Montana. They finally they find Tom, who has signed up with Custer’s army and is headed for Little Big Horn.
