Huck, an outcast teenager, and Jim, a runaway slave, are fleeing down the Mississippi on their makeshift raft. Adventures grow wilder, stories taller, and the people they meet more outlandish as they journey through a young America, searching for freedoms without and freedoms within.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain’s all-time classic novel of taking chances and pushing boundaries, is brought crashing onto the stage by award-winning theatre company Shapeshifter. With live music and a charmingly funny script, HUCK is a messy, raucous and uncouth epic for young, old and everyone in between.
Original Production produced by Fresh Glory Production in association with Shapeshifter and The Theatre Chipping Norton
