RICE LAKE -- “The Boys in Autumn,” play about a reunion of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, will be staged Wednesday, July 28, through Saturday, Aug. 7 (no show Aug. 1), at the Red Barn Theatre, 2247 22nd St., Rice Lake.
Curtain time is 7:30 p.m., and audience members are asked to claim their seats by 7:15 p.m.
Taking place in the 1920s, the play shows septuagenarian Tom Sawyer returning to his boyhood home on the Mississippi River seeking his childhood friend Huck Finn. Tom encounters a hostile, reclusive man who at first bears no similarity to his old friend Huck. Shortly, the truth of the man’s identity is revealed, and Tom and Huck are reunited.
But are they still friends? Can they still share their deepest dreams and darkest secrets?
Written by Bernard Sabath and directed by Patsy Vork, the show features Bill Koslosky as Thomas Gray and Pat Liedl as Henry Finnigan.
Tickets cost $17 and are available at 715-234-8301, 888-686-3770, or redbarntheatre-ricelake.com.
