"Spoon River Anthology" is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
Synopsis: Via musical interludes, we are introduced in a cemetery to the ghosts of those who were inhabitants of this town, and whose secrets have gone with them to the grave. There are sixty-odd characterizations and vignettes in this constantly interesting entertainment offering an amazingly varied array of roles and impersonations, from young lovers and preachers and teachers to the funny chronicle of the poor mixed-up Jew who ends up in the wrong cemetery. Both the solid and humorous sides of life are portrayed with fetching ballads and the free-verse form of Masters.
