This is not going to be another poetry reading: Spoon River Anthology is an experimental exploration into what it might mean to define deaf theatre in the 21st century.
Spoon River is a series of epitaph-monologues delivered by the ghosts of the deceased citizens of the fictional town of Spoon River, Ill. Made truly equal by and in death, they reveal the secrets they guarded during their days on earth.
In 1915, Edgar Lee Masters’ book by the same name shocked America and obliterated the romantic myth of village life. With almost 100 actors, Gallaudet’s production of Spoon River, directed by Ethan Sinnott, is a modern, multimedia adaptation designed to resurrect the shock value of Master’s notorious classic.
This show is appropriate for patrons age 12 years and up. Children under the age of 5 will not be permitted in the theatre.
