The Sawyer Studies is at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden from 1st to 9th December, 2015.
The Sawyer Studies consists of three one act plays inspired by The Adventures of Tom Sawyer written by eighteen year old American playwright Noah Altshuler. Noah is the playwright-in-residence at the Mark Twain House & Museum and has been commissioned by the House to write a full adaptation of Tom Sawyer which will open on Broadway in 2016. The Sawyer Studies deal with teenage romance, true love and how one is destined to be remembered after death. Making the Move plays on Twain’s themes of teenage romance and is the uproarious story of two teenagers agonising over their first kiss. The famous episode in which Tom walks into his own funeral is appropriated in the darkly comic play The Last Call to Providence. Finally, The Engagement directly recreates Tom’s experience of courting his belle Becky. Comical and poignant, this production is suitable for audiences both young and old. The production runs the same week as the 180th anniversary of Mark Twain’s birth.
