The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail

Throughline Theatre presents their 2013 season with The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail

A profound and moving memory play that finds transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau reflecting on his life and experiences as he sits in jail for refusing to pay a tax that may fund the Mexican-American War, The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail digs into history to question how much one person can do to change the world and how much one action can matter.
