George, a professor at a small college, and his wife, Martha, have just returned home, drunk from a Saturday night party. Martha announces she has invited a young couple—an opportunistic new professor at the college and his shatteringly naïve new bride—to stop by for a nightcap. When they arrive the charade begins. The drinks flow and suddenly inhibitions melt. It becomes clear that Martha is determined to seduce the young professor, and George couldn’t care less. But underneath the edgy banter, which is crossfired between both couples, lurks an undercurrent of tragedy and despair. George and Martha’s inhuman bitterness toward one another is provoked by the enormous personal sadness that they have pledged to keep to themselves: a secret that has seemingly been the foundation for their relationship. In the end, the mystery in which the distressed George and Martha have taken refuge is exposed, once and for all revealing the degrading mess they have made of their lives.

In the village of Spoon River, Illinois, those inhabitants now “sleeping, sleeping, on the hill” are given one final opportunity to speak to the living by way of their own epitaphs. In more than 60 characterizations and vignettes, along with fetching ballads and historic popular song, it becomes clear that these townspeople — neighbors, friends, lovers, family members, and even murderers — saw each other very differently. Unhindered by the everyday facades of early 20th-century life, their stories are honest, confident, and free of shame. Discover their secrets, heartaches, and regrets; sympathize with their love and loss; laugh with their foibles and foolish adventures; journey through the history their lives created together.
Rating: All audiences.
Rating: Language, violence, sexual situations, adult themes.
