What Was That Essence Productions Historical Werribee Mansion Show



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. The the story unfolds as you move from room to room
and ascend the grand staircase.

This is an exciting event full of surprises and ends with a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink.

 1899, Mrs Hannah Brydan, the picture of respectable widowhood, has lived alone in her sprawling mansion for the past few years.
She enjoys nothing, save for the occasional company of her dressmaker, the flamboyant and sharp-tongued Mr Bertin.

The next project for Essence Productions and will be preformed in the Historical Werribee Mansion late
September 2022.
