Gorey centers on the enigmatic and endearing artist at different stages of his life and spans 50 years from young adulthood to shortly before his death. This bold new play is an introspective study that fuses fact and fiction using lush projections and inventive storytelling. Gorey investigates the artist’s dark imagination, his personal demons, and the heartbreaking loneliness of creative genius. The result is a compelling collection of fragmented memories that are lyrical, revealing, and often funny. Each fragment brings us one step closer to distinguishing the man from the literary myth.
