Charles Aidman, conceived from Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology
Dramatic Platform Readings w/incidental music, songs
Characters: 3 male, 2 femaleBare Stage.
Via musical interludes, we are introduced in a cemetery to the ghosts of those who were inhabitants of this town, and whose secrets have gone with them to the grave. There are 60 odd characterizations and vignettes in this constantly interesting entertainment offering an amazingly varied array of roles and impersonations, from young lovers and preachers and teachers to the funny chronicle of the poor mixed up Jew who ends up in the wrong cemetery. Both the solid and humorous sides of life are portrayed, with fetching ballads, and the free verse form of Masters.

Every episode of the 1980s anthology sci-fi series, a reworking of the popular 1950s show created by Rod Serling. The premise of the show was for each episode to stand as a self-contained drama, allowing an array of writers, directors and actors to explore a variety of themes, characters and futuristic possibilities within a framework that generally contained a climactic plot twist. The 1980s version attracted directors including Wes Craven, William Friedkin, Joe Dante and Martha Coolidge, with the actors to appear in the series including Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Martin Landau, Joe Mantegna and Fred Savage.
