PPP's On the Edge Group to Perform The Rimers of Eldritch October 12 & 13...
Possum Point Players affiliate ON THE EDGE will present The Rimers of Eldritch in October.

Playwright Lanford Wilson is particularly known for his successful New York productions of Burn This, The Fifth of July, Talley’s Folly, and The Hot L Baltimore. The Rimers of Eldritch is an award-winning play that has sometimes been called "a cynical Our Town." The title comes from the word 'rime' or 'hoarfrost' which is a frosting that sometimes coats trees and gives them a shiny surface that is not their natural appearance underneath. In the play the inhabitants of Eldritch gradually lose their shiny coating and reveal their darker side.

Performances will be in PPP's Possum Hall in Georgetown on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, 2019. On The Edge is an affiliate of PPP with the purpose of presenting "edgier" pieces than those presented as part of Possum’s regular season of main stage shows.
