What really happened inside Henry David Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond? Wonder no more! Self-proclaimed Thoreau scholar Charles Rucklemore, III will show you the exact truth - or something really, really close to it. Part fantasy, part mythology, part clown-show, and all inspired by Thoreau's Walden, Walled In tells the story of one man's determination to live the life he has imagined.
Founded in 2010 by Zack Fine, Diana Buirski, and Christopher Tramantana, The Room (theatre company) devises original works that strike a match to the heart of the imagination. By placing the performer(s) at the center of the development process, their pieces re-imagine and re-conceive base texts with a playful physicality and vocal ingenuity that engage audiences in a joyful expression of live performance.
Walled In was developed, in part, with assistance from SPACE on Ryder Farm (www.spaceonryderfarm.com). An excerpt of Walled In was also presented at the 2011 "One Man Talking" Solo Festival, curated by Emerging Artists Theatre.
