PLAY based off of the collection of poetry by Edgar Lee Masters
In a rousing continuation of our Virtual Theatre series, Circle Theatre has gathered several of our community’s most talented actors to perform individually recorded monologues from the classic collection of poetry by Edgar Lee Masters: The Spoon River Anthology. In the spirit of Our Town, and Winnesburg, Ohio; Spoon River documents the lives (and deaths) of those in a fictional farming town, narrated by the townspeople themselves. Considered groundbreaking at the time, both for its blisteringly honest portrayal of small town life, and allegations that the characters were based on real-life people, “Spoon River Anthology” has come to be considered a staple of high school English curriculums, and actor intensive theatre programs.
Circle’s Virtual Theatre will present these filmed performances on a semi-regular basis throughout the winter. Tickets are “Pay What You Can”. Any donations go directly to supporting Circle Theatre, and your viewership directly supports our local actors practicing their craft while we await the reopening of our stages.
