Charles Aidman, conceived from Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology Dramatic Platform Readings w/incidental music, songs Characters: 3 male, 2 female Bare Stage. 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 60 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. "A dramatic presentation reduced to its simplest terms...moving and beautiful...An evening of astonishingly stirring emotional satisfaction." -N.Y. Post "A glowing theatre experience...A brooding and loving American folk poem brought to life on a stage."-N.Y. Times
