"Spoon River" Helps Fund Real Cemetery
The play version of Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology" features the characters telling their stories from the graveyard, after death.
So it seems appropriate to use the play as a fundraiser for a graveyard.
And that's just what's happening, as the Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery mount a production of "Spoon River" to bring in money for cemetery upkeep.
David Gordon provides musical accompaniment for the play. He visits with period-appropriate songs ready to play.
