Kenneth Lin (Intelligence-Slave, Warrior Class) returns to the Alley with a new adaptation of Mark Twain’s great American novel about the travels of Huck Finn, an adventure-loving boy and his unlikely companion Jim, an escaped slave who dreams of buying his family. As the pair travels by raft along the Mississippi River they encounter rapids in the fog, an epic family feud, and a con man who just might be the King of France. Lin (a writer for House of Cards) reimagines Twain’s original story, keeping the wild situations and larger-than-life characters you remember but focusing his lens on the relationship between Huck and his father Pap.
Commissioned by the Alley Theatre.
