Mystery of Lakewood House

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Mystery of Lakewood HouseBack by popular demand and with a new ending! NACL will close the 7th annual Catskill Festival of New Theatre with the return of a site specific theatre experience for all ages: The Mystery Of Lakewood House. In this original mystery, the audience can visit various locations in and around Lakewood House (the residence next door to the theatre). The spectators catch glimpses of scenes from the past, and can view characters up close — in the living room, around a kitchen table, on the porch, or in the garden. Music, secret conversations, fragments of dream-like imagery, and mystery unfold in a journey back and forth in time until the final scene reveals the truth.
