J.T. Turner's “Robert Frost Light and Dark” comes to The Plainfield Opera House on Sunday, April 7, 2024 at 4:00 PM


This highly-praised original one-man show brings America’s beloved poet to life as he relates the tragedy as well as the humor behind Frost’s work, along with his most popular poems, including Mending Wall, Birches, Nothing Gold Can Stay, Late Walk, Desert Places, Road Not Taken, and Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. This show is a remarkable and intimate journey through the Pulitzer Prize winning poet’s life, set in the Vermont cabin he called home. The show, which runs 70 minutes with no intermission, has delighted filled-to-capacity audiences for more than a decade. Don’t miss your chance to see it in Plainfield this Spring!
