Project Abstract/ Summary
The Rimers of Eldritch is Marcia Douglas's selection for spring 2003. Born in Lebanon, Missouri, in '1934, playwright Landford Wilson tackles the closed-mindedness of small towns. In 1965, Wilson. who has been compared_with Tennessee Williams, William lnge and Lillian Hellman, wrote Eldritch about a murder in a town of that name. In it, he senses the rhythm of Bible Belt America, with its capability for the vicious, despite its moralism.
