Attention Ladies and Gentleman! The Lord of this Manor, Arthur Matheson, wishes to cordially invite you to help solve a long standing mystery, stepping back in time to experience history as it unfolds before your very eyes! Long ago, Roderick Matheson left coins hidden in the house, in case hard times ever fell on the family. He has since passed away, and took with him the secrets needed to solve the puzzle. Come join the young maid, Mary as she takes you on a tour of the historic house. Using Homer's The Odyssey as the cipher, we present you a unique experience, as the audience assists Mary in solving a long-hidden mystery, leading to a treasure. The show is a journey back to a time when the house was alive with the past. The audience will experience much about love, loss and honor while being guided through by the one set of eyes that has seen all in this home. Appropriate for all ages, this 60 minute performance is an experience not to be missed! The performances will take place in the Matheson House Museum September 5 and 6th at 2pm and 4pm. Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased by calling 613-267-1947 or stopping by the museum at 11 Gore Street East. Contact Karen Rennie, Heritage Tourism Manager for more details

Cost: $10
