Spoon River Anthology
Weekly episodes start January 4, 2021
PLAY based off of the collection of poetry by Edgar Lee Masters
In a rousing continuation of our Virtual Theatre series, Circle Theatre has gathered several of our community’s most talented actors to perform individually recorded monologues from the classic collection of poetry by Edgar Lee Masters: The Spoon River Anthology. In the spirit of Our Town, and Winnesburg, Ohio; Spoon River documents the lives (and deaths) of those in a fictional farming town, narrated by the townspeople themselves. Considered groundbreaking at the time, both for its blisteringly honest portrayal of small town life, and allegations that the characters were based on real-life people, “Spoon River Anthology” has come to be considered a staple of high school English curriculums, and actor intensive theatre programs.
Circle’s Virtual Theatre will present these filmed performances on a semi-regular basis throughout the winter. Tickets are “Pay What You Can”. Any donations go directly to supporting Circle Theatre, and your viewership directly supports our local actors practicing their craft while we await the reopening of our stages.
Father Comes Home from the Wars
Premieres February 15, 2021
PLAY BY Suzan-Lori Park
Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner Suzan-Lori Parks delivers a devastatingly beautiful dramatic work filled with music, wit, and great lyricism. Father Comes Home From the Wars is an epic tale about holding on to who we are and what we love in a country that both brings us together and rips us apart. Offered his freedom if he joins his master in the ranks of the Confederacy, Hero, a slave, must choose whether to leave the woman and people he loves for what may be yet another empty promise.
