Camping with Henry and Tom

by Mark St. Germain, directed by Patricia Bunce

May 15-17, 2020


With folksy charm and old-fashioned humor, this easygoing political satire depicts an ill-fated 1921 camping trip taken by automaker Henry Ford, inventor Thomas Edison and President Warren Harding. Drawing upon documented quotes and biographies to paint a portrait of the celebrated trio, playwright Mark St. Germain blends fact and fiction in order to explore the human side of these famous men, whose private personas often differed from their exemplary reputations. Winner of the 1995 Off-Bway Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding New Play.
