By Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee; Directed by Edward Gero

A Mainstage Production

With contemporary resonance, Lawrence and Lee imagine circumstances surrounding 19th Century writer Henry David Thoreau’s imprisonment for his refusal to pay a poll tax designed to support an unpopular war. Reflected through the memories of his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, the play explores the roles of government and the governed, civil disobedience, education, and the interdependence of man and nature.
