For two performances this weekend, local playwright, Frank Levering, will span over 200 years of emotion, philosophy, and morals of life in Carroll County as told by by 20 of its citizens.

Using free verse poetry in the style of Spoon River Anthology, the characters speak from the grave telling the human story of heartbreaking poverty and wealth, great feats of so called ‘uneducated ‘ men, crimes of the heart, and long lives well lived.

Only from the grave can the dead speak with complete honesty pumping the blood of passion and regret into the strange story they tell.

Presented Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 7 p.m. and on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 2 p.m. at the historic Carroll County Courthouse. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $15 which includes dessert and conversation with the cast following at the Hale-Wilkinson-Carter Home.
