The Rimers of Eldritch

Patsy Johnson (Vanessa Morrison) & Josh Johnson (Luke Middlebrook)

Role: ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Once a thriving mining town, Eldritch, Missouri has fallen on hard times. An old loner approaches a young girl in the woods. A witness shoots him dead. Gossip runs riot in the community as every detail of the case is examined in court and debated on the streets of Eldritch. Lanford Wilson’s early play is a turning point in American drama. His verbatim-style writing sets the stage for plays such as The Laramie Project, and recalls Bertolt Brecht’s model for epic theatre using conflicting voices from a community in crisis. The Rimers of Eldritch is a puzzle play that will intrigue you until the final word.
