The original work was a sensation when it appeared in The free-verse series of epitaphs, each spoken by a different deceased former resident of the small town of Spoon River, was in itself a literary breakthrough. Even more of a stir was caused by the content of the work, which revealed the dark underside of life in apparently-typical small-town America.

Although set in the midwest, the work will seem quite at home in our former Grange hall, on our wonderful, intimate stage, where traveling troupes and local Grange members were putting on shows during the era depicted in Spoon River. A cast of fine community actors, many of whom are familiar from our previous five productions, will perform in a setting designed by Jason Clark; Stage Manager is Sue Shedd, and Producer is Don McLean.
Guilford Center Stage was founded in to bring theater back onto the stage in the town's historic Grange hall. Plays with a connection to Guilford, to the Grange itself, and to the region have been particularly featured, with rural, small-town life and history as a thematic backdrop.

In January, the building was acquired by the new non-profit Guilford Community Center, which has mounted a capital campaign and will shortly begin renovations on the building. Soon, we'll have unproved accessibility, safety, and the ability to use the building in comfort year-round.
While the first phase of building renovation is underway this summer and fall, we'll move for our autumn production up the road to Guilford Center Meeting House. Kid Friendly: No. Lee began her career at Theatre West understudying all the women in the original Broadway production of Spoon River Anthology.

This chilling new one-woman play was conceived by its star, Lee Meriwether, and Jim Hesselman, who also artfully directs the production. The original adaption with a full cast, ran here at Theatre West 40 years ago, and then moved to Broadway starring Betty Garrett and Joyce Van Patten… with Meriwether understudying both roles.

Issues including marriage, lust, death, insanity, regrets, passion, childbirth and more… dramatically unfold. Difficult to properly summarize for you- and monumentally challenging for its solo star to enact- this is a worthy and reminiscent, though mind-bendingly complex, journey.

She hopes to tour the play on college campuses. Moody lighting by Yancey Dunham and music by Kenneth Atkins perfectly set the mood for this eerie telling. This production is an adaptation of Spoon River Anthology, a book of short poems written by Edgar Lee Masters in and a staple in high school and collegiate English departments across America. In this newly adapted version, Women of Spoon River: Their Voices From The Hill, the famed Lee Meriwether portrays the women of Spoon River, a fictional town in the mid-western United States that is inspired by an actual body of water of the same name.
She was part of the original Theatre West workshop in and understudied three leading ladies in the subsequent Broadway production. This new take on Spoon River is an obvious labor of love as evidenced by the commitment to the work and intention of touring colleges and universities across the United States.

Meriwether portrays twenty-six characters young and old with an approach that alleviates any confusion as to who is who. Each character has her own specific demeanor and physicality as they are skillfully brought back from the dead and onto the stage in a series of moving vignettes. At first the vignettes stand alone but as they progress, the relationships between characters becomes apparent and the play becomes whole.
The variation among the characters is astounding and it includes socialites, widowers, and many differing personality types, each narrating their own interesting story. The audience is allowed into the mind of each character as they recount their lives from beyond the grave, sometimes even reflecting on their own demise.

While some appear innocent, others have tasted suicide, murder, conspiracy and scandal as the women of Spoon River paint a picture of the sometimes harsh realities of life, and eventually death, in their small town. A single-hander such as this is a tough feat for any actor to handle, but with an experienced and well seasoned performer such as Lee Meriwether at the helm, both the quality and integrity of the work are well maintained. The acting is superb and the pacing just right to keep the audience interested.
The set suggests a graveyard setting with several dead trees placed around the space. Props for the piece are cleverly hidden among the branches and utilized at the appropriate times in order to accentuate the characters.
