Spoon River, an original adaptation of Edgar Lee Masters’ “Spoon River Anthology,” directed by Jonathan Westerberg, is a haunting, post-mortem reflection on life, love, and death—all spoken from deceased townspeople of the fictional, 19th century hamlet of Spoon River, Illinois. A combination of live and filmed storytelling, student vocal and musical production, and original choreography, Spoon River imagines what the dead might say if they had nothing left to lose.
