A Slice of Our History and a Step Toward Our Future

The Provincetown Theater is honored to have been chosen as one of four local arts organizations to receive institutional access to the beautifully restored Mary Heaton Vorse House in Provincetown’s East End. Designer and benefactor Ken Fulk recently shared his vision for this historic house with the New York Times, where he imagines this house as a major asset in the reclamation of Provincetown’s status as a premier art colony. His act of generosity comes full-circle for us in the theater community as Mary Heaton Vorse (in addition to being a writer, director, and actress in her own right) was herself instrumental in the success of the original Provincetown Players by allowing her fish house on Lewis Wharf to be repurposed as their makeshift stage. Now, over 100 years later, the Provincetown Theater is galvanized by this opportunity to keep Ms. Vorse’s memory alive and, simultaneously, to aid Mr. Fulk in his mission of promoting the arts here on the Outer Cape.
