Called "the father of American literature" by William Faulkner, Mark Twain was one of the most celebrated and beloved authors in American history. While he gained fame and notoriety for his novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, he is just as fondly remembered for his caustic wit and outspoken support for science, racial equality and women's rights. Comedian Bill Oberst, Jr. has performed as Mark Twain over 1500 times, and in this show at Stone Mountain's ART Village he expertly recreates the irreverence, humor and artful storytelling that made Twain a legend.
This show is recommended for ages 10 and older.
The performance is approximately two hours long, with a 15-minute intermission.
