Over the years, men have fought countless duels over insults to a lady's honour. But not this time. An offense has been committed, a challenge issued, a time and place settled; all that remains now is the duel itself, but this time the ladies will take matters—and swords—into their own hands. Will they fight to the death? Perhaps. Perhaps not, but either way there is more at play here than meets the eye! On Thursday evenings, join us for an exciting, immersive night of live theatre, and help Sergeant Bellefond piece together the clues to solve the case in the brand new Louisbourg Murder Mystery: The Petticoat Duel!
On Thursday evenings Eric Letcher presents a Louisbourg Murder Mystery. The Petticoat Duel brings audience immersion to a new level, allowing visitors the chance to piece together clues and solve the case.
