Poets’ Theatre: A Wake (Edward Gorey)

The Poets’ Theatre was founded in 1950, right down the street in Cambridge. It presented the work of all sorts of notable writers and actors who’d go on to be stars. One of the co-founders was a young Edward Gorey. He designed their printed materials—including this poster, produced for a memorial celebration at the Agassiz Theatre at Harvard. An essential piece for theater lovers, Cantabrigians, Harvardians, Massholes, and Goreheads.
