Mark Twain in Fairhaven, August 1st-18th



When local playwright and historian Joseph Lenz wrote his “musical tall tale” Mark Twain in Fairhaven, he probably never guessed it would be 10 years before it would actually be performed in its namesake locality. For three weekends in August the Firehouse Performing Arts Center will host the play, which is loosely based on Twain's visit to Fairhaven in 1895.

  • Performances are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 7:30pm & Sundays at 2pm, August 1st-18th.
  • Tickets are $12, $8 for students and seniors & are available at Village Books and at Brown Paper Tickets.
  • The Firehouse Performing Arts Center is located at 1314 Harris Avenue.
