WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Pudd'n Head Wilson, adapted from Mark Twain's final novel, is the author's last long look at America through the lens of his boyhood hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. Set in a fictionalized version of that town during the same antebellum period as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Pudd'nhead tells the story of Roxana, a woman whose ancestry is 1/16th African. Even one drop of African blood designates her by law as black and holds her in slavery. To save her son (by a white father, and hence of 1/32nd African ancestry) from the same fate, she switches him in the cradle with a legally white baby. Adapted by: Terry McCabe and Brian Pastor Directed by: Terry McCabe
