The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail

By: Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee

Show Description:
Writing in the New York Times, Howard Taubman described the ideological relevance of The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail to contemporary audiences, stating "this play and its protagonist, though they are of the 19th century, are speaking to today's concerns: an unwanted war in another land, civil disobedience, the interdependence of man and nature, education, the role of government and the governed.”
