Poplar Hall Presents: The Revisionists at Rockwood

Friday, October 21, 2022

Haunted ghost stories touring through Rockwood’s gardens by night.

Haunted ghost stories touring through Rockwood’s gardens by night.

Each individual ghost-story walk through Rockwood’s gardens is led by a character known as a “Revisionist,” a person that retains the innate ability to speak with the unliving, to hear what sent them, and at times help to reveal and rewrite their circumstances and untimely demise. Revisionists will lead each tour (in character) by lamplight, tell the never-before-heard stories and protect event-goers from the apparitions that find their way back from the spirit world.  Viewers will hear handwritten tales mixed with vignettes with ghosts as the night unfolds.  

The mobile theatrical experience is a history lesson with a dark dollop of the Victorian Macabre. The haunted story walk is a guided tour that lasts 90 minutes and is true Victorian traditional handwritten storytelling at its finest, from eras rife with supernatural themes and practices, including mourning, spiritualism, and funeral traditions.

Walking over uneven terrain and in a range of weather conditions, comfortable shoes and weather-resistant clothing is suggested. Stay afterward for a cash bar and special spooky concoctions.
