From Off-Broadway

Winner! 1995 Off Broadway Lucille Lortel Awards, including Outstanding Play of the season.
In 1921, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and President Warren G. Harding took a camping trip together into the Maryland woods to escape civilization; what they couldn't escape was each other. Inspired by an actual event, Camping with Henry and Tom is an exploration of friendship, politics and leadership; a comedic and dramatic clash of two great minds and one great heart of the twentieth century.
"Wonderfully entertaining.... Full of thought and feeling.... A treasure chest that leaves the audience aglow with pleasure." - N.Y. Post.

"Witty, elegant, and enormously entertaining.... Unusually literate, funny and captivating." - N.Y. Daily News.

"Delightful, rollicking, quintessentially American fiction [that] turns us for a couple of hours into the happiest of campers." - N.Y. Magazine.

Camping with Henry and Tom was first presented at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in New York City on February 20, 1995. It was directed by Paul Lazarus.
