The irrepressible Tom Sawyer, his best buddy Huck Finn, and many other beloved characters created by Mark Twain come to life in this all-American adventure. When the two boys are accused of stealing Becky Thatcher's gold necklace, and with even Aunt Polly and the Widder Douglas doubting them, Tom and Huck decide to take off for the swamp. The real culprit, Herman Cornwallis, is delighted to see them run away so he can have more time with Becky. In the swamp the boys meet up with Mary Meechum, thought to be a witch. The three accidentally overhear the suspicious Slade sisters planning to scam the town and witness the sisters' partner kill someone who wanted in on the action. Together Tom, Huck, and Mary save the town and regain their good names. Lots of humor, interesting roles as kids and adults, and easy sets make this play Americana at its best.
