Spoon River Anthology
“Where you invest your love...you invest your life.”
This exciting new theatrical adaptation of Edgar Lee Masters' classic poetry cycle explores the accounts of a fictional small town's triumphs and failures, and loves and losses, based on epitaphs from the town's gravestones. Don't miss this astonishingly stirring and emotionally satisfying offering. The dead, "sleeping on the hill" in their village cemetery, awaken to tell the truth about their lives: tales of war, poverty, religion, and marriage among many other themes in this gossipy detail of middle America.
