in this haunted cottage by the sea
be careful what you sniff for
for tragedy is rarely better seen than heard,
especially in your own backyard.
For this tragi-dream-epic, we resurrected the G.I. Joe figures that my husband Larry
used when he made his animated version of "Jaws" at age 12.
Aside from a few rusty joints, their capacity for performance excellence was still intact,
proving there not only are small actors, but small parts as well.
Also featured: our dog Joe; his look-a-like animatronic; an antique doll suffering
from a degenerative surface condition, exacerbated by the salt air; a seagull wing; a newly acquired one room beachhouse;
and my father-in-law's model sailboat.
Status of production: principal actors still trying to "get the sand out."
