2018 FEATURED TALE
The Raging Tide: or, The Black Doll's Imbroglio by Edward Gorey

It is with great excitement and bustle-shaking anticipation of our 2018 season that we proudly announce our featured Gorey story of the season (drum roll, of course, and most certainly a bit of a sudden!) ...

The Raging Tide: or, The Black Doll's Imbroglio—a one-of-a-kind interactive tale by our beloved Edward Gorey!

Interactive tale? Whatever do we mean?

For those not familiar with this twisted fable, it would best fall under the parasol of what many children belovedly know as a "choose-your-own-adventure" tale.

Choose-your-own-adventure? Who chooses?

You!

And thus, beginning October 1, 2017, we will be posting the very pages of this book on our Facebook page, one decision at a time, and letting you, dear Edwardians, choose the course and destiny of our story. Once chosen, your story will be delivered to your Edwardian Ball co-hosts, Rosin Coven & Vau de Vire Society, to be scored and choreographed for an original stage performance. Choose wisely, the fate of the 18th Annual Edwardian Ball is in your hands.

Check back here to see the story be written in its entirety by YOU!

Enjoy!
