Lee Stetson as John Muir in a one man performance

Event Details

Event held at Sierra College

Join acclaimed actor Lee Stetson performing as “John Muir is Back, and Boy! Is He Ticked Off!" In this powerful and delightful one-man play, Muir is once again roaming his beloved planet - but now as a deeply troubled and bitterly disappointed spirit. Muir returns to express his love for nature and his frustration with us.

Despite a lifetime devoted to preserving wild lands and wildlife, his success as Father of the National Park system, and his vision in founding the Sierra Club, he finds before him today’s unimaginable environmental evils. He sees his beloved glaciers rapidly melting, his “plant people” disappearing, and the daily inexcusable extinctions of his “fellow mortals”.

He is righteously ticked off, and is now on an intense search to find those responsible - “Lord Man” and his minions. He implores us to become better beasts. Along the way, he’ll be reminded of – and will share with us – many of his most memorable, astonishing and often humorous wilderness adventures. The conservation movement lives on in this often hilarious and sometimes passionate plea to keep the spirit of John Muir alive.

Stetson’s one-man play is guaranteed to captivate everyone in the audience. Stetson has performed various works that he has written on the life of John Muir throughout the United States, Europe and Japan.
