What All The Silent Murmuring Was About


I could barely sleep last night for all the — well, it wasn’t noise exactly. It was the sort of thing that sounded like an excited crowd talking about what they expected to happen, only with the whole mob of Henry fans in the backyard pointing at things and holding up signs and stuff. Anyway, it turns out tonight they’re having O Soglow’s The Little King give an address, as the vigil’s non-speaker of honor. Honestly so psyched for this.

The Little King walks past signs commanding SILENCE in the museum, and in another room (he takes off his shoes), and in another room again. He steps on a tack and cries out (wordlessly). His guards point to the SILENCE sign.
O Soglow’s The Little King for the 31st of August, 1952, and rerun the 8th of April this year. Also … wait, what?

    1. Yeah, he’s got regular old feet. You just mostly see them when he’s in his bathing costume. Which is body-length and horizontally striped, so that at least that part of the world makes sense.
