Winter 2014

Spoon River Project poster

Based on Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters, and adapted by Tom Andolora

In this beautifully haunting play based on Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology, the former residents of Spoon River examine life and the longing for what might have been. As the citizens reflect on the dreams, secrets, and regrets of their lives, they paint a gritty and honest portrait of the town as all of their pasts are illuminated.

“We may live in a very different world than that of Spoon River, but Masters’ truths about the human condition are eternal. The Spoon River Project delivers them with love, care, and rich, enveloping atmosphere. I’m so glad I went.” – Erik Haagensen, Backstage (Critics’ Pick)
