Lanford Wilson's powerful drama The Rimers Of Eldritch is set in a small mining community in America's 'rust belt'. A sense of decay, of missed opportunities and of insularity permeates the play, which tackles the theme of intolerance in an uncompromising, but also bleakly witty fashion.

Although written in the late 1960s the play has a very modern feel to it stylistically; it slips forwards and backwards in time and moves from location to location with a fluidity that counterpoints the character driven and psychologically-realistic elements of the play. This is something that we have been keen to reflect in the designs and in the production as a whole.

By arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.
