DIRECTOR’S NOTE

Alone in one’s house, not doing a whole lot; this story felt familiar after being cooped up from the pandemic over the past couple of years. A contemplative series of portraits, Gorey’s original 1953 illustrated story creates an atmosphere of whimsy and ambiguous unease. I am excited to share the lonely creative Mr. Earbrass with audiences as we crawl back out of our homes, and begin to connect with one another again. Please enjoy!
