West Chester’s Greystone Hall is hosting an interactive play involving scandal, murder, and opulent wealth during the Jazz Age, writes Maggie Mancini for the PhillyVoice.

This performance of The Manor, written by Katherine Bates will have the audience and actors move throughout the house as the tales unfold.  

True crime fanatics will love this lore of money and murder, based on the Dohenys in Southern California. Once considered part of country’s wealthiest family, oil baron Edward Doheny Sr. was embroiled in the Teapot Dome scandal. He was accused of bribing U.S. officials for federal land. Edward gave California’s historic Greystone Mansion to his son, Ned, who faced his demise in a murder-suicide a few months after moving in.

Twelve members of the fictional family will give their side of the story in this interactive performance. The Manor will run from March 2 through March 12. Light refreshments, including wedding cake, will be served.
