With a soundtrack arranged and performed by State High Thespians, Women of Spoon River (2020), focuses on and reflects upon the lives of 28 women from the collection, Spoon River Anthology. In sharing the lives of these women, we hope you will find as we did, that while much has changed since the 1800’s, there is still much that remains the same. “Spoon River Anthology (1915), by Edgar Lee. Masters, is a collection of short free verse poems that collectively narrates the epitaphs of the residents of Spoon River, a fictional small town named after the Spoon River which ran near Masters' home town of Lewistown, Illinois. The entire collection includes 212 separate characters, in all providing 244 accounts of their lives, losses, and manner of death.”
