This poetic masterpiece, first published 100 years ago this year, was the inspiration for Thornton Wilder's Our Town. The ghostly voices of the dead, in the cemetery of Spoon River, Illinois, rise in the moonlight to reflect on life, love, loss and the American identity. With Steven Barkhimer, Marianna Bassham, David Gullette, Caitlin Langstaff, Paula Langton, and Nael Nacer. Directed by Bob Scanlan.
