The Spoon River Project
City Theatre Austin celebrates the spirit of community with the premiere online production event adapted from the masterwork American poetry of Edgar Lee Masters. Thirty actors–Thirty poems–Thirty performances. Speaking from the past in a small Illinois town, local Austin actors perform the most revered of Masters’ collection, poignantly capturing the politics, passion, love, betrayals, secrets, failures, and hopes of its citizens, and expressing true stories about death and life to reveal a moving portrait of what–and who–create a place called home. Staged and filmed at Mueller Park. Online event playing thru February 28th and can be viewed anytime.
