Theatre Discipline Lead: Shannon Kearns

In The Rimers of Eldritch, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson has crafted a vivid tapestry of life in a small Midwestern town. Part murder mystery, part poetic drama, Wilson skillfully shifts from one locale to another, moving backwards and forwards in time, weaving words and images into fluid patterns of incident and judgement, and revealing the depth and complexity that lie beneath a simple story of innocence lost. The New York Times called Rimers "a powerful look at greed, intolerance, jealousy, self-righteousness, sexual hypocrisy, and blind conformity." One of America's most respected playwrights, Wilson is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award, a Vernon Rice Drama Desk Award (for The Rimers of Eldritch), two New York Drama Critics Circle Awards for Best Play and an Obie Award for Sustained Excellence Off-Broadway.
