Will Hutchins was the programmatic leader of the Deerfield Arts and Crafts movement and tried to elevate and refine its output. The Harrow Theater, held outdoors in a field on Deerfield's Street, featured local townspeople and experienced amateurs from the New England Region. The minimalist stage included few props and the production relied more on the talents of the actors than the quality of the scenery. Ben Greet, referred to at the bottom of this article, produced highly acclaimed spare productions of Shakespeare. During the early 20th century the Ben Greet Players toured throughout New England and New York.
