Edward Gorey Plays Cape Cod:
Puppets, People, Places, & Plots
How to classify the extraordinary Edward Gorey?
Artist? Writer? Dark humorist? What about Dramatist?
It was in theatre that Gorey’s artistic career started and ended. After his Tony Award for Frank Langella’s Dracula, he left New York for Cape Cod. From Woods Hole to Provincetown, Gorey wrote, designed, and directed a scintillating set of “entertainments” starring local actors and his own troupe of handmade puppets. Now Gorey’s friend and neighbor Carol Verburg tells how he did it – from Flapping Ankles and “The Helpless Doorknob” to “Horror at Hamstrung Hall” and Moderate Seaweed.
