Event: Nautical Nightmares: Wake of the Banshee
Venue:Mystic Seaport Museum – Mystic
Date: October 25-26
Description: Inspiration for this year’s Nautical Nightmare, Wake of the Banshee, is founded in the depths of Irish, Scottish, and English folklore, pulling reference from the works of Yeats, Shakespeare, and other collected cultural whisperings regarding the mischievously mysterious “fair-folk.” Each performance of Nautical Nightmares is an approximately one-hour tour that covers a 1/3 – 1/2 mile of uneven terrain including cobblestone, wood planking, grass, gravel, and stairs. Audience members walk or stand for the majority of the show. Because performances occur in all weather conditions, we strongly recommend the use of seasonal outerwear and appropriate shoes.
