Event Type

Nature, a walking play, is coming back to Concord!  After receiving rave reviews when here in 2017 for Thoreau’s bicentennial, TigerLion Arts, in partnership with the Trustees, will bring their show back to The Old Manse!

Nature is the mythic telling of Emerson and Thoreau’s mutual love affair with the natural world. Grounded in the story of their friendship, this virtuosic production offers a perspective on their lives that is strikingly relevant, richly complex, and yet utterly simple. Participants follow the actors as the scenes unfold in the grassy meadows and native trees over a 90 minutes performance, which includes pre-event period bagpiping and choral music.

Following the 1 PM show on Sunday, September 22, The Walden Woods Project’s Curator of Collections and editor of the recently released Solid Seasons: The Friendship of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Jeff Cramer, will facilitate a post-show discussion.
