A Night of Victorian Tragedy: Live at Green-Wood
About A Night of Victorian Tragedy
The Victorians knew a thing or two about tragedy—in fact, they seemed to almost revel in tales of disaster and doom. And a Victorian-era cemetery, like Green-Wood, has an abundance of these heartbreaking stories.
Expert storyteller, writer, and comic Tara Clancy hosts this not to be missed outdoor event, where you (yes you!), the audience members, vote on which Victorian tale is to be crowned as the most tragic. Four aficionados of sadness will try to convince you that theirs is the most heartbreaking. Our friends at Bindlestiff Family Cirkus will provide entertainment before the show, and throughout the night you can try your luck at Victorian-era trivia. Be sure to bring tissues. Fainting couches not provided.
PLEASE NOTE: The pre-show entertainment starts at 7:30pm, and the storytelling begins at 8:30pm. Doors close at 9:00pm. Attendees are expected to follow all necessary health and safety protocols as directed by the Cemetery’s staff and volunteers.
