College Theatre is just about ready to open the original student adaptation of Spoon River Anthology by Michael Moon, directed by Connie Canaday Howard (Director of Theater).
A collection of poems from Edgar Lee Masters’ 1915 book of poetry, Spoon River Anthology paints a picture of life in a small, midwestern town through a series of vignettes. Secrets once locked away by the long-gone residents of Spoon River will be revealed through various stories from beyond the grave.
