A Timeless Gathering

A mysterious figure from Brockton's history, identified only as Circa, is now in the modern day. They have no recollection of who they are or how they got here. Some sort of historical time warp has occurred and only pictures, items and stories from a time long ago seem to trigger memories about their identity. Stay with Circa for anecdotes from their life as they come flooding back, and piece together clues and riddles to figure out their identity.

This program is brought to you by Living History, a theatre company that specializes in bringing your local history to life. The shows take audiences on a one hour adventure through time. Audiences will experience a full tour of the location while interacting with the characters, and assisting them in solving an urgent issue that can only be resolved with the audiences' help.

There will be three performances, each lasting roughly one hour. They will begin at 9 AM, 11 AM and 1 PM.
