WHAT WAS THAT?
Based on the true stories of the Chirnside family (19th century wealthy squatters), this play combines history, scary elements and comedy. Two actors as 'Maggie' the head maid and 'Mr Duncan' the head butler will guide you through the mansion and the story unfolds as you move from room to room. This is an exciting event full of surprises and ends with a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink.
