Spoon River Night 2019: A Halloween Special
Come and see our students transform themselves!
Featuring the students of the Advanced Acting Technique class.
What are the Spoon Rivers?
What is the Spoon River Anthology
The Spoon River Anthology is a collection of poems written by Edgar Lee Masters. They are short but powerful pieces of free verse that explore character in the context of death. They comprise the final stages of the Advanced course in the Meisner Technique and bring together everything our students have been working on over their years studying the Technique.
The characters you see, are deceased. Having failed to deliver to the world their last word of caution or wisdom, they roam purgatory in agony. Suddenly, the ‘pinch’, the vehement call and cry of the people or of a person they have left behind, (given by a chosen audience member), awakens them from their ‘purgatoric’ slumber and becomes the impetus for them to deliver their last and final ‘punch’ to the world.
