Open to new and old actors

(limited roles for youth)

 "Edgar Lee Masters is best remembered for his great collection Spoon River Anthology, a sequence of over two hundred free-verse epitaphs spoken from the cemetery of the Town of Spoon River. When the collection first saw publication in 1915, it caused a great sensation because of its forthrightness about sex, moral decay, and hypocrisy; but its cynical view of Midwestern small town values influenced a whole generation of writers and their works. The volume, said Herbert K. Russell in the Concise Dictionary of American Literary Biography, became an international popular and critical success."

Free versions of Spoon River Anthology are available on line. Google it or find it at http://www.gutenberg.org/

Motor City Theatre will treat Masters' work as a means to recreate moments in the lives of the residents of the fictitious Illinois Town of Spoon River in the early 1900's. The workshop will include character analysis, improvisation and scene study
(but mostly fun!).
Spring/summer production with summer cemetery production (s) (TBA)

Spring performances will be held at Motor City Theatre; summer performance (s) will take place in a local cemetery or in the "MCT Cemetery out back."
