At left is just one of the 30 residents of Spoon River's cemetery you'll meet when actress Linda Gray Kelley comes to the Merrimack Public Library on Wednesday, April 6, at 7 pm. Her one-woman play, "Come to Spoon River" is based on the classic Spoon River Anthology, by Edgar Lee Masters. It tells the stories--tragic, funny, scandalous--of the residents of the small town in the 1890's American mid-West. With changes of costume and props, Kelley portrays all 30 characters.
You may remember Kelley from her outstanding performance last year as Elizabeth Blackwell, America's first woman doctor. She's a talented and energetic actress and the artistic talent behind Theatre Rising, a Massachusetts based theatrical production company. We are delighted to have her back in Merrimack before she relocates to Florida this spring. This production is great fun, and you won't want to miss it.
