The "Mark Twain on Slavery" program entertains in typical Twain style but also moves to the serious side as Sam Clemens tackles the issue of slavery. In his own words, Clemens tells of his experiences and the characters who shaped his understanding of slavery from his days in Hannibal to his world-wide fame. This program covers all periods of Samual Clemens life. It starts with his life as a boy in Hannibal, the slavery he observed, and personal anecdotes of the "white town drowsing in the summer sun". It includes material from his Autobiography, his essays, his short stories, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. One of the most touching pieces is taken from "A True Story" in which Clemens tells the poignant story of his friend Aunt Rachel who had been a slave in Virginia and her amazing true story of horrendous family separation and eventual reunion. This show also includes Twain's indictment of slavery, of human cowardice in general, and our cruel treatment of our fellow human beings. This show reveals the Mark Twain you never knew. This live theater show has been performed to great reviews in over forty states and Canada.
