THE NIGHT THOREAU SPENT IN JAIL

MARCH 27 - APRIL 11

Written by Robert E. Lee, Jerome Lawrence

Directed by Tom Frascatore

Produced by Laurie Devino

Based on the early life of main character Henry David Thoreau, The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail follows the events leading up to the night Thoreau spent in a Concord, Massachusetts jail after refusing to pay a poll tax which he thought would pay for a war he opposed. Speaking to today's concerns, The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail is a story of trying times, civil disobedience, unwanted war, and man vs. nature.

Over the years, Tom has helmed lauded productions for T-Squared Productions, Phoenix Productions, Circle Players, The Chatham Playhouse, Playhouse 22, UCPAC and here, his artistic home, HTC.

Recent projects include:  How it Really Happens (T-Squared Productions-Philadelphia Fringe Festival), Proof (Playhouse 22), The Importance Of Being Earnest (Chatham), Much Ado About Nothing (and 5 more here at HTC), Baked Goods (NYC Sound Bites Festival) as well as numerous staged readings.
