A grieving widow. A house with secrets. And an invitation to a seance...

A Spirited Manor is a Victorian penny-dreadful filled with thrills, chills, and laughs based upon the book by USA TODAY bestselling author, Kate Danley.
Runtime: 90-minutes without an intermission
*Trigger warning: A Spirited Manor is a Victorian penny dreadful, which was a cheap form of pulp fiction sold in the 19th century for a penny. These supernatural stories were based in the spiritualism movement and considered absolutely "dreadful." In feel, think Dracula written by a hack. A Spirited Manor contains violence, supernatural curses and creatures, Victorian world views, murder, references to guns, a few thrills and chills, (a bit of laughter), and... well... it's a penny dreadful. Ages 14+
