As we think back about our lives, we may find ourselves wondering what happened to the friends of our childhood. With
honor and wisdom The Boys in Autumn, takes a look at the lives of two long separated friends who seem strangely familiar.
Taking place in the 1920’s, 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 (Tom Sawyer) and Pat Liedl as Henry Finnigan (Huck Finn).
