The Rimers of Eldritch
Department of Drama
The Rimers of Eldritch
When a murder and assault rock a rapidly decaying mid-20th Century Missouri town, the question is not who did it, but why? The process of answering this question peels back the layers and exposes a side of themselves the townspeople never wanted to see. Pulitzer Prize winner Lanford Wilson’s 1966 play offers a fascinating, haunting, and enduring look at the difference between the people we think we are and the reality that rests closer to our often murky moral centers.

Vodka Variations an evening of Chekhov shorts
Join us for a spirited toast to Russian culture and Anton at his funniest. It this libation of Chekov’s one-act plays and adapted short stories, we are reminded of just how tipsy-turvy human nature can be, no matter the century. From the streets of 1880s Moscow come everyday people who misjudge, misinterpret, and mistake the world around them simply because they crave the intoxication of life and love. As Chekhov himself once observed: “Any idiot can face a crisis; it’s this day-to-day living that wears you out.”
