Save the Date: PHANTASMAGORIA in Partnership with Escapism Productions

Isham-Terry House 211 High Street, Hartford, CT, United States

A ghost-hunting duo investigates an old Victorian mansion, hoping to catch evidence of the supernatural. They have been led there by the stories of a mysterious dinner party that had gone missing in the 19th century, and have invited the audience to help discover the truth, and maybe find a ghost (or two!) What happens, though, when the ghosts do more than go bump in the night? Soon, our investigators uncover the secrets of what happened that dark evening in 1888. Can they help settle the spirits of the past, without adding to the population of ghosts who haunt the house?
