Leaves of Grass – Illuminated

written and performed by PATRICK SCULLY
from the text by WALT WHITMAN

Overview

The Guthrie is proud to present Leaves of Grass – Illuminated, written and performed by Patrick Scully, from the text by Walt Whitman. This unique event summons the spirit of Walt Whitman, revealing his many sides. From the furtive – changing genders to “straighten things up” – to the fierce – defying the censors while getting banned in Boston – this is the Whitman that none of us learned about in American literature class.
