Mound Builders, The

This signature production by New York?s Circle Repertory Company is a story about civilization. Imbued with edgy vitality and raw social surfaces, Lanford Wilson?s 1975 Obie Award-winning play dramatizes a confrontation of Native American traditions with the demands of 20th century society. A lyrical thriller, it portrays the conflict between a team of archaeologists and the aspirations of a group of local residents, and raises questions about the monuments we leave behind us as evidence of our vision. "The Mound Builders" was restaged for television on location near the famous Coster archaeological dig in southern Illinois.
