Event Description

For three days in May of 1903, President Teddy Roosevelt and the naturalist John Muir camped alone together in the Yosemite. One expected to be paid homage, revered for his accomplishments, and praised for his wilderness prowess. The other desired to have his voice heard, his philosophy followed, and his wisdom sought. The problem was, both men wanted to do all the talking. A complex look at the ongoing battle over what do do with our public lands told through the unique wit and whimsy of Luna favorite Ben Clawson (Tilt the Unlit Candle, Dangers of Electric Lighting, and The High Water Mark).

Written by Ben Clawson and Directed by Cheryl Katz

Commissioned with the support of The Dramatists Guild Foundation in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of The National Park Service
