NanoCamp is currently open for kids entering grades 2-8.

    Contact: Whitney Retallic   781-259-4700   education@walden.org
   

Clear Sky, Pure Light: an Evening with Henry David Thoreau opened in Thoreau’s native Concord in July of 1975 — three months into the nation’s Bicentennial celebration. The response to the two-act dramatic portrait was immediate and enthusiastic: Concord critic Rebecca Ruggles acclaimed it as “a thoughtful and dignified production” that seemed less a performance than “an intimate talk.” It was, she concluded, “as if Thoreau had come back for a day to tell us a few of the things he thought most important.”

Drawn from WaldenA Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, “Civil Disobedience,” and lesser-known passages in Thoreau’s Journal and his personal correspondence, the hour-and-three-quarters one-man show presents Thoreau as a multifaceted individualist. It captures him in light moments as well as serious ones, and is revelatory of the private as well as the public man.

These performances of the Clear Sky, Pure Light for the Walden Woods Project, during the Thoreau Bicentennial, mark the first time in just over twenty years that Christopher Childs has presented the play in its entirety and with full costume and makeup.

We hope you will join us to welcome Childs back to the stage and, with him, our beloved Henry.
