Creepy Puppets

Everyone loves terrifying puppets with yarn hair. And I got to write a little play for them. Alice Nelson produced A Night at the Grand Guignol in Calgary in Februrary and my play “A Matching Pair” was smack at the top. Grand Guignol means Big puppet and at the Theatre du Grand Guignol in Paris ( 1897-1962) it was known as the “Theater of Laughter and Terror”. Apparently, it all went really well. Because, people like awful, fuzzy puppets, plus blood.
