You Can Sleep When You're Dead
Campbell House Museum presented this interactive theatrical experience that invited the public to explore what happens when a person suddenly passes away with unresolved issues so powerful they do not fully crossover to the other side.
For two weeks, the Campbell House became host to these tortured spirits.
Each story is set in a different era, spanning various floors and rooms throughout the house. A live heart is ripped from a chest while you extend your sympathies to a grieving family at a wake. A man of god fights to save an innocent soul from demonic possession on the second floor. A brutal strangling takes place in the dining room, while in the kitchen below a man barters his life with the cook… hoping for tasty results. A secret society invites you to join them—will you accept?
