    Spoon River :
"Spoon River Anthology," written by
Edgar Lee Masters and currently being pro­
duced by Clackamas County Repertory
Theater, is an excellent conglomeration of
ideals, dreams, and realities of Spoon River -
a small town of Appalachia.
A cemetery is the setting for the por­
trayal of some seventy-five characters by
the twelve players. The play plunges, with­
out delay, into the dialogue and poetry of
Masters' including many revealing songs and
some down to earth square dancing.
These separate types of expression are
superbly woven into a fine production of
the ups and downs of typical small town
life. The different testimonies of each char­
acter range in content from murder to adul­
tery to comedy.
The entire cast gives a superb performance
with a special treat - Billy Rod Ragsdale,
one of the players, has five of his original
songs included throughout the play. Every
member of the cast does a phenomenal job
of switching from one character to another.
"Spoon River Anthology" is a complete
showcase of the uncertainties and troubles
of typical rural America in the early twen­
tieth century. The production will be show­
ing through Feb. 12, at McLoughlin Theater,
Friday and Saturday nights.
