Victorian Theatre by Candlelight at Harrison Home

Three one-act French farces of “Madness, Mockery and Mayhem” are scheduled at 8 p.m. for eight performances, 20-21 and 27-28 April and 4-5 May, in the President Benjamin Harrison Home, 1230 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis.

The three plays are:
“Romance in A Flat,” written by the father of French farce, Georges Feydeau.
“A Matter of Wife and Death,” written by Eugene Labiche.
“The Police Chief is an Easygoing Guy,” written by political satirist Georges Courteline.

The Harrison Home will treat theatergoers to an unusual theatrical experience as the audience members will rotate through rooms of the presidential mansion to see the three plays, each staged by candlelight and other ambient lighting.

Tickets are $18 per person and $15 for seniors (those 65 and older), students and members; call 317:631-1888.

More information is available on the home’s website.
