Mourning Wreath Upon the Door - A 19th Century Immersive Halloween Show (Ages 13+)

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 10/30/2021
A 19th century immersive drama, where the Beddows family's All Hallows Eve party gives way to eldritch, Lovecraftian horror. - October 1899: The Beddows family invites you to partake in the festivities of All Hallows Eve! Though their house is shrouded in mourning from a recent, tragic death in the family, they are opening their doors to welcome you in! The night’s festivities boast parlor games and a séance conducted in the spiritualist fashion common to Arkham, Massachusetts. Be wary, however, for this is the time of the year when the veil is thinnest, and all manner of horrors, spiritual and eldritch alike, will not need to work hard to find you.

- Mourning Wreath Upon the Door takes place in the 19th century as you join the fictional Beddows family and their guests for an All Hallows Eve celebration. Escapism Productions has worked with Connecticut Landmarks to set the scene at the Isham-Terry House to create a historical story about 19th century customs and traditions, but with a Lovecraftian-type story of cosmic horror. Come and explore the House and the story in this unique production. We are waiting for you to escape with us.
