Mark Twain’s American classic,  The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is the story of a boy’s journey with a runaway slave as they make their way down the Mississippi river. Huck, a rebel at heart, is escaping from starched collars, civilization and the drunken rages of his Pap. Jim is seeking life as a free man in the Northern states. On their journey, Huck learns the true meaning of friendship and freedom.

“Timothy Mason adapted [The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn] with sensitivity and an appreciation of Twain’s remarkable humor.” –Minneapolis Sun
