THE VISITATION

The Wyckoff House | Brooklyn, NY

THE VISITATION ran from November 3-5, 2017 at the historic Wyckoff House, the oldest building in the city of New York. Audiences were free to roam the house and grounds as they witnessed the tale of a 17th-century farming family, a girl claiming to be possessed by witches, and the two priests tasked with learning the truth. The Visitation returned to the Wyckoff House for an encore run from March 10-25, 2018.

"The performance is layered, dense, and rich ... Aside from the wonderfully creepy site-specific staging, the second biggest strength of The Visitation is in its excellent ensemble acting and highly polished script. An impressive debut."
-Kathryn Yu, No Proscenium

"[A] terrifying Nathaniel Hawthorne-meets-The Exorcist tale. If you go see The Visitation, which you should … every choice you make has a profound impact on the narrative you experience and how you experience it. The thrill of that experience comes when you realize the extent of your freedom as an observer."
-Graham Techler, Paste Magazine

"For three nights in early November, New York City’s oldest home was haunted by a 17th-century tale of witchcraft. ... I had an enjoyably unsettling time."
-Allison Meier, Hyperallergic
