The centennial anniversary of Edgar Lee Masters’ groundbreaking anthology is commemorated in this fresh adaptation starring actors Paddy and Jon Lynn with folk singer Patti Ecker. Causing a sensation with its frankness about sex, moral decay and hypocrisy, the collection of over two hundred interconnected free verse epitaphs focuses on former residents of the fictitious town of Spoon River, who come forward from their graves to tell us the truth about their lives.
