Part of NSN’s 2020 Halloween Gala
This event is best for ages 18+
This show is not for the weak-of-heart. In several of these All Saint’s Day tales, we hear of ways the Living make peace with the Dead (or fail to do so). Turn out the lights, light a candle, and settle in for tales of searching for a lost head, exorcism, a bleeding grave, a crreeeeking rocking chair, and an insanely jealous man. Let’s hope we don’t all fall down dead from these chilling and touching tales of the supernatural kind.
