"The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail" is one of the most widely produced plays of our time. Written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, the play explores a mystical experience of one of America's most influential thinkers during a night spent in jail for refusing to pay taxes in support of what he felt was an unjust war. Thoreau's night in jail led to his famous essay "Civil Disobedience." This essay had a profound influence on Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
