Open Circle Theater: H.P. Lovecraft's Pickman's Model

Posted on behalf of Open Circle Theater:

Open Circle Theater brings you its 8th annual production of H.P. Lovecraft with Pickman’s Model.

People have been going missing in Pioneer Square.  Some of them turn up horribly mutilated.  It is the night of the unveiling of the latest and greatest painting by Richard Upton Pickman, Seattle's self-proclaimed "premiere artiste morbid" in a struggling Pioneer Square gallery.  But something is not right.  Following a strangely disturbing and somehow toxic musical performance art piece, the painting, Ghoul Feeding, is unveiled and is met, not with amazement and artistic acclaim, but with terror, physical revulsion, and insanity in all who view it.  All that is, except for Pickman himself who is strangely elated.  Pickman vanishes leaving only questions:  Where is Pickman?  How is this connected to the disappearances?    What has Pickman been doing in a series of mysterious tunnels beneath the Old Seattle Underground?  Vivian Thurber, Pickman's agent, and Danyeris Eliot, a photojournalist, cannot rest until they find out, but what they find out threatens both their lives and their sanity.
