The Ornery Theatre will present an original work, Cthulhu: A Puppet Play, at local art space 14 Pews from February 14-18th.
Cthulhu: A Puppet Play is based on the cosmology created by the master of horror, H.P. Lovecraft (author of seminal classics The Call of Cthulhu, The Dunwich Horror , and The Dreams in the Witch House). Borrowing from Lovecraft’s themes and characters, Cthulhu: A Puppet Play uses puppets, film, and an original score to capture the feeling of impending doom intrinsic to Lovecraft’s works and place it in a modern setting.
Cthulhu: A Puppet Play was conceived and written by Mike and Kelly Switzer of the Ornery Theatre. This production is made possible by a grant from the Houston Arts Alliance, as well as the generous support of Kickstarter funders from across the globe. The Ornery Theatre was founded by Mike Switzer and is committed to producing work, both new and classic, that would not otherwise be seen on Houston stages.
The Ornery Theatre has previously produced the original puppet play Bedtime Stories (Producer’s Pick at the 2011 Houston Fringe Festival), Rough for Theatre I and II by Samuel Beckett, and The Adding Machine by Elmer Rice.
