About this show

Gregor and the Squonk is a modern fairy-tale, a twisted, yet touching examination of how far people are willing to go for the sake of beauty. Set in a Pennsylvania forest during the dead of winter, Gregor and the Squonk centers around Gregor Courtepy, a hunter deeply devoted to his vain wife, Margaret. After a countless number of plastic surgeries leaves her broken and self-loathing, Gregor enlists the help of their doctor to find a creature rumored to grant eternal beauty to whoever captures it. Absurd, fantastical, and often haunting, Gregor and the Squonk is the perfect fable for a society built on botox, rhinoplasty, and silicone.
