Cortland Rural Cemetery

September 27, Tioughnioga River Anthology (theater production)

7:00 pm, Cortland Rural Cemetery, 110 Tompkins Street. Inspired by Edgar Lee Masters' renowned book of poetry, the "Spoon River Anthology" (1915), the "Tioughnioga River Anthology" was conceived and written by beloved Homer English teacher and theatrical expert Bill Whiting. Like its inspiration, tonight’s play offers us a series of life stories as told by the dead. Unlike Master’s original work — which was a fictional account of small-town America — Whiting’s "Tioughnioga River Anthology" dramatizes the lives of actual people who lived, and died, right here in Cortland County. Indeed, many are buried in this very cemetery. This particular performance of the "Tioughnioga River Anthology" is being produced by the Cortland Rural Cemetery in conjunction with the actors of the The Trope Troupe (based at the United Presbyterian Church) and student actors/musicians from the Cortland Jr/Sr High School. It is co-directed by Scott Gay and Benjamin Wells. $5 tickets are purchased at the door, but seating is limited -- so seats MUST be reserved ahead of time by calling the Cemetery office. For more information call 607-756-6022, e-mail or visit
