Book and Lyrics by Lanie Robertson
Music by Mel Marvin

Newly re-issued title! Similar in structure to Spoon River Anthology and Our Town, it's life - and in this case, violent death - in a small town tied together by a running commentary by the town's sole physician of many years. The author has a savvy sense of black comedy, utilized by weaving a series of sordid tales of backwoods murder and adultery. Each vignette is either compelling or caustically comic. It is a strangely beautiful play, with music, by a writer of great ability.
"I am impressed by Robertson's poetic sweep of his rural Southern American dialogue and by the intrinsic truthfulness of his characterization." - Philadelphia Daily News.

"A rousing affirmation of life with all its mystery and variety ... Robertson has drawn a gallery of incisive and keenly sympathetic character portraits." - Memphis Press Scimitar.
