Adapted from Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this play centres on the outcast urchin Huck, who, along with runaway slave Jim, drift through the night, carried along on their makeshift raft by the mighty Mississippi. Huck is at the frontier – of a new nation, of morality – and he is struggling with all the conundrums the adult world can throw up. Fleeing his violent father, separated from his best friend, Huck wrestles with prejudices of faith, class, colour and age, while his own innately good heart struggles to win out.

As the river carries them away from home and towards new dangers and adventues, the relationship between the two fugitives deepens, the adventures grow wilder and the stories taller.
