Project Description

Rimers of Eldritch at Delta Drama

By Lanford Wilson

Directed by Greg Foro

Set in the dried-up midwest mining town of Eldritch, Rimers is the story of a community torn apart by a murder trial unfolding over a year’s seasons, and as frost — or ‘rime’ — descends over the land, the community reveals its demons and its heart. Winner of the Vernon Rice Award, this highly imaginative and affecting play was hailed by the critics for its introduction of a new and remarkably talented playwright. Arraying his characters on a series of platforms with everyone on stage throughout the play, the author employs a unique conceptual technique to blend together the various people and bits of action into a striking mosaic, which captures, with eloquence and insight, the very heart and meaning of the small Middle Western town of Eldritch.
