For the first half of the 20th century, Le Theatre du Grand Guignol in Paris reigned as the predominant purveyor of make-believe savagery, peeling away audiences' anxieties to reveal the horror within. These days, André de Lorde's Grand Guignolers de Paris continue to terrify in Debbie McMahon's adults-only interpretation of a children's classic. This year also marks Guignol's 200th birthday, originally created by a French dentist to ease the fear of his patients. Prior to the performance, cake, libations, and a French-language absinthe demonstration commemorate the creation of one of modern puppetry's foremost figures.
