9/22 The Rimers of Eldritch
This Tuesday, SEPTEMBER 22nd, we will be reading THE RIMERS OF ELDRITCH by Lanford Wilson.
In THE RIMERS OF ELDRITCH, the mystery is: who he is, who murdered him and what were the circumstances? And to solve it, playwright Lanford Wilson looks at the outsides and insides of his tiny, Mid-Western town. He looks at the a middle-aging woman who falls in love with the young man who comes to work in her cafe. He looks at a coarse, nasty woman mistreating her senile mother, who is obsessed with visions of Eldritch being evil and headed for blood-spilling. He looks at a tender relationship between a young man and a dreamy, crippled girl. But Wilson sees far more than this. He is grasping the very fabric of Bible Belt America, with its catchword morality and its capability for the vicious.
