The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain's all-time classic novel of taking chances and pushing boundaries, is brought crashing onto the stage at the Queen's Theatre in Barnstaple this month by award-winning theatre company Shapeshifter.

With live music and a charmingly funny script, Huck is a messy, raucous and uncouth epic for young, old and everyone in between.

Huck, an outcast teenager, and Jim, a runaway slave, are fleeing down the Mississippi on their makeshift raft. Adventures grow wilder, stories taller, and the people they meet more outlandish as they journey through a young America, searching for freedoms without and freedoms within.

The play was written by James Graham, from the novel by Mark Twain and directed by John Terry. It was produced by Fresh Glory Productions in association with Shapeshifter and The Theatre Chipping Norton.

The play is recommended for children of a minimum age of eight, as it contains issues of racism and slavery.
