Travel back to the1920s with The Manor, an interactive theatre experience at the 115-year-old Greystone Hall in Chester County. As you drive down the winding road to enter the mansion grounds, you’ll immediately become immersed in this play by Kathrine Bates. Enter through the main doors and watch the story unfold.
The two-act play was first performed in 2002 at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills and has been selling out year after year ever since! The play is actually inspired by tragic real life events that took place there in the early 20th involving century oil magnate Edward Doheny (who built the mansion for his son).
You’ll get to experience the fictionalized story in West Chester as audiences are taken through rooms of Greystone Hall in the 20s and 30s. Join the MacAlister family wedding celebrations and get a front row seat to the drama that unfolds through the next decade. From cigars in the library to tension in the piano room, secrets, illegal actions, and something shocking in the stairwell – The Manor will have you falling down an internet rabbit hole when you get home to find out more about the true story. The cast, comprised of actors from Colonial Playhouse of Delaware County, bring this story of greed, power and secrets to life for the East Coast audiences.
Tickets are extremely limited, so don’t hesitate. Grab them here. The admission price includes sweet and savory refreshments during intermission, including a taste of the MacAlisters’ wedding cake. This is a not-to-be-missed experience if you’re a theatre fan!
