ZACHERLE (a prequel to the last mummer)
Into our fears we must delve,
If we want to know what is ourself,
As you’ll see from two girlies,
And the only Zach-er-le,
When you see the show September twelfth
(this was a limerick I sent to the PA Fringe Festival for the half-written, half-improvised horror show I co created and performed in in September 2010. I portrayed the character Zacherle who was inspired partially from myself, and inspired partially by John Zacherle, known in Philadelphia as Roland, the Cool Ghoul).
This is a photo of a mask designed to resemble John Zacherle in his horror movie host persona. The mask was never manufactured for public sale.
