The Mound Builders
At an archeological dig in the midwest, a party of university scientists are unearthing vestiges of a lost Indian civilization. Heading the group is Dr. Howe, accompanied by his wife and daughter, and by a younger associate and his wife. They are all joined by Dr. Howe's sister, a famous, and jaded, novelist, who is "drying out" after many years of dissipation in remote parts of the world. There is also an outsider, the acquisitive son of a local landowner, who wants the digging site to be turned into a commercialized tourist trap. Interweaving past and present through the use of slides, the action of the play probes into the lives - and conflicts - of these disparate people. Their story evokes resonances which illuminate what we are and will surely become, and which underscore the irony of our collective blindness to the disturbing lessons which a close study of the past must inevitably reveal.
