Play with Music / Music by Mel Marvin / 4m, 6f (34 characters) /
Various sets. Similar in structure to Spoon River Anthology and Our
Town, It's life - and in this case, violent death - in a small
town, with music, tied together by a running commentary by the
town's sole physician of many years. The author has a savvy sense
of black comedy, all utilized in weaving a series of sordid tales
of backwoods murder, and adultery. And each vignette is either
compelling or caustically comic. It is a strangely beautiful play
by a writer with much ability. "I am impressed by Robertson's
poetic sweep of his rural Southern American dialogue and by the
intrinsic truthfulness of his characterization." - Philadelphia
Daily News "A rousing affirmation of life with all its mystery and
variety ... Robertson has drawn a gallery of incisive and keenly
sympathetic character portraits." - Memphis Press Scimitar
