Spoon River Anthology & other spooky shows at Laurel Hill Cemetery

Laurel Hill Cemetery Spoon River Anthology

If you believe that “dead men tell no tales,” you’re dead wrong. The Spoon River dead are a loose-tongued lot. So lend us your ears and we’ll give you our voices, our secrets, our deepest resentments. No zombies, no vampires, no sheet-shrouded ghosts here – just good, old, down-home dead…

Spoon River Anthology was the haunting work of Edgar Lee Masters, first published in 1915. In the text, the dead of a Midwest burial ground speak from beyond the grave to relay the sordid details of their lives and deaths. This is your opportunity to be a fly on the wall of the hereafter. Sit back and settle in amidst the good company of Laurel Hill’s permanent residents.

Produced in partnership with the MANAYUNK ROXBOROUGH ART CENTER, original performances of Spoon River Anthology will be staged at Laurel Hill Cemetery as part of the 2013 PHILLY FRINGE FESTIVAL.
