I think I bought this at a church rummage sale about 3 years ago, and it has just sat in my bookcase ever since. This is a great, quick read (as are most plays), and it was an interesting way to (concisely) learn about HD Thoreau. It would be interesting to see this play performed because it's so minimalist and really puts the onus on the audience to imagine. This is also a good read in terms of themes regarding civil disobedience. I'd recommend this.
