Willing Suspension Productions Presents:

William Wordsworth's

        _The Borderers_

Set on the border of Scotland and England in the fourteenth century, this
rarely performed gothic tragedy portrays the downfall of Mortimer, the
idealistic young leader of a band of dispossessed landowners.

An early Romantic play that anticipates the drama and internal psychology of
the modern stage.
