Spoon River (virtual one-act version)

adapted from The Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters

 This brand new version of Spoon River was created specifically to be performed on a virtual platform. 

Former citizens of a mythical Midwestern town speak from the grave of the day-to-day hopes and dreams of their lives. Touching, anguished, and contemptuous, their voices and stories weave together in this fresh new take on a modern American classic. You won't forget what you've heard from these distinctively small-town folk as they evoke universal themes of hope, despair, and love.

Royalty fee per virtual performance: $50. A virtual performance is a performance on a platform like Zoom with no audience members physically present. A royalty must be ordered for each time the play is performed and streamed. The performance of this play can also be pre-recorded and streamed at a later date.
