Staged Reading of Pudd’nhead Wilson
By Charles Smith
Directed by Chuck Smith

This pre-Civil War story follows Judge Driscoll's two sons, one the child of his wife and the other the child of his house slave, Roxy. Langston Hughes called the ironic and tragic Pudd’nhead Wilson a "tribute to Mark Twain’s understanding of human character [and his belief that] color is only skin deep."
