The Guelph Public Library is hosting a performance of The Unfortunate Man. Register HERE

A compelling true story of murder from 1889 told right where it happened.

See where William Harvey worked (James Walter Lyon’s The World Publishing Company), Bond’s Hardware where William Harvey bought the pistol, St. George’s Church, where William was the Sunday School Superintendent, and finally the Wellington County Courthouse where William Harvey was hanged! Hear actual newspaper accounts of the day recited from memory. Hear William’s final words. Listen to detailed accounts of this shocking event exactly as written in 1889. Thrills guaranteed.

Not for children. Perfect prelude for Halloween.
