What You'll Get
Long before Black Lives Matter, Harriet Beecher Stowe's book Uncle Tom's Cabin rallied abolitionists worldwide and, for a time in the 1800s, sold more copies than the Bible. Now, Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum presents Tom, a new stage adaptation of Stowe's tale of a long-suffering black slave who uses religion to cope with the horrors of his surroundings, and struggles to keep his faith against overwhelming brutalities. Performed in a stunning outdoor amphitheater setting in Topanga, Tom uses authentic folk music from the period in this fresh framing of one of American history's most powerful and influential tales.
The seats are wooden benches with backs, so feel free to bring a cushion or blanket. The theater also has cushions available for rent or purchase. Snacks and beverages are sold before the show and at intermission. Picnics are welcome prior to attending a performance. The gardens and grounds are open daily. With the exception of bottled water, no food or beverages are permitted inside the amphitheater during performances.
Concessions available on site. Picnickers are welcome. Arrive early to secure a table. Sweatshirts or light jackets for cooler ocean breezes in evenings. We have installed a new sunscreen for afternoon performances, but hats may still be helpful when visiting concession and garden areas.
