Join storyteller Lynne Cullen as she performs two classic Victorian Stories that will chill you to the bone. Cullen's concertina will provide haunting atmosphere as it echoes throughout the Mansion's stunning interiors. Lights are dimmed to gaslight levels, casting shadows and playing tricks. Children and adults alike will revel in the opportunity to take part in this one-of-a-kind theatrical event. This year, Ms. Cullen will feature the works of Sheridan Le Fanu and Lucy Clifford, renowned 19th century horror writers whose works still influence the genre today. A special children's performance (recommended for attendees 12 and under) will be held at 6:30 on Saturday, October 18, 2014  featuring folk tales from around the world. Adult performances are Friday, October 17 at 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM and Saturday, October 18 at 8:30 PM.
Tickets are $22 for adults, $15 for Victoria Mansion members and $10 for children 17 and under. Victoria Mansion is located at 109 Danforth Street, Portland.
