Robert Frost, Light and Dark.  In J.T. Turner's original 70 min. show (adaptable to your schedule), you will visit with American’s poet in his Vermont cabin. The Pulitzer Prize winner will share the stories of his life and work, both the humor and the tragedy, along with some of 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. Turner’s moving performance as Frost has filled the historic Frost Farm in Derry, NH to capacity numerous times, and now he can bring this beautiful show directly to you. (Condensed youth version "Robert Frost, America's Poet" is also available.)
