"Mark Twain's Blues, press notes state, "opens with the 65-year-old Mark
Twain preparing for yet another of his frequent humorous lectures. But
this one will be different, because soon after Twain begins to speak,
he's surprised by a voice from the audience: it's Huckleberry Finn, now
a full 20 years older than he was in Twain's book. He's soon joined by
escaped slave Jim - now 50 years old - and together the two accuse their
creator of betraying the truth of their lives in order to boost book
sales. Determined to set the record straight once and for all, Huck and
Jim act out some of the scenes in Twain's book...but this time, the way
they really happened.".
