A Narrative Anthology Compiled by Jon Giodano and Richard Reade

Staged by Minor Rootes

Presented by the Treehouse Players and the Maine State Bicentennial Commission in cooperation with Ram's Island Dance Center and Langley Associates.

From the program:

In our presentation tonight, we are pleased to bring to you a collection of writings, short stories, and essays all of which are native to this country. In fact, many are the original works of New Englanders who lived during the periods depicted. In dramatic form the works are brought back to life again with the uses of narrative, music and mixed media. They reveal the pride, anguish, envy and determination of a people who moulded the American character and helped to develop a rich folk lore.
