Davey Marlin-Jones directed this 1972 made-for-television performance of Lanford Wilson's small-town drama The Rimers of Eldritch. Starring Rue McClanahan, the play is a character study that focuses on the residents of Eldritch amid a sexual assault and a murder trial, two unrelated events that both breed tension and lies in the tiny hamlet. Also starring Susan Sarandon and Frances Sternhagen, the program was released as part of Kultur's Broadway Theatre Archive series.
