By A.M. Dolan Directed by Gus Kaikkonen Featuring Gordon Clapp February 6-16 The perfect marriage between a treasured American poet and a beloved actor, Emmy-winner (NYPD Blue) and Tony-nominee Gordon Clapp returns for an encore performance as Robert Frost in A.M Dolans THIS VERSE BUSINESS. Fresh from the Lincoln Center production of "The Great Society", Clapp once again breathes life into Frost, poised and waiting for the birth of a new poem. "Why don't I say some poems to ya Ive already written...and we'll see if another one creeps up on me." Frosts endless quest to express life through metaphor - and encourage the reader to find their own meaning of life - is beautifully captured through this intimate moment between actor and audience, featuring timeless Frost classics such as "Mending Wall", "The Road Not Taken" and "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening".THIS VERSE BUSINESS features Gordon Clapp ("Stella and Lou").

What is the history of Peterborough Players ?
The Peterborough Players produces 7 Main Stage shows each season that run late June through September, and two Second Company children's shows that run July and August. The Peterborough Players was founded in 1933 by Edith Bond Stearns -- EBS as she was known to friends -- a woman of imagination and vision with a love for the arts. To quote from Our Playhouse (available through Peterborough Players): “At the time EBS decided to purchase the Hadley Farm, it was abandoned and had no electricity or running water.”
