Stageworks/Hudson presents The Mound Builders by Lanford Wilson, directed by John Sowle and starring Steven Patterson, Dan Fenaughty, Lauren Murphy, Louise Pillai, Jack Kesy and Molly Parker-Myers.
During an archeological dig in the Midwest, a party of scientists are unearthing vestiges of a lost Indian civilization. They are in a race against time to excavate the site before it is engulfed by a man-made lake. But lurking in shadows, a malevolent primal force is biding its time as it prepares to wreak havoc on any who would dare to exhume, for their own ends, what was never meant to be brought to light.
Interweaving past and present, The Mound Builders is a thriller, a mystery and a searing family drama that illuminates the clash between urban and rural, red-state verses blue-state and the conflicting ways in which men and women struggle to leave a legacy for future generations.
