Nautical Nightmares: Madness on the Mystic River

Dates · Oct 12 – Oct 28

Join us for an evening of haunted thrills with Nautical Nightmares: Madness on the Mystic River, inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft.

You’ll join the alienists of Arkham to investigate a haunted whaleship and the madness that has descended through the town… if your sanity can survive the night!
