It’s almost closing time at Billings Estate National Historic Site when you run into a strange figure dressed in period clothes and seeming confused. The mysterious character, identifying only as Circa, is horrified to discover they are in the modern era, and that many of the things they remember and love are now behind glass, on shelves, and written about in history books. They have no recollection of who they are, or how they got there.

Only pictures, items, and stories from a time long ago seem to trigger memories about their identity. Stay with Circa as anecdotes from their life come flooding back and travel through time searching for clues. Make sure to avoid the security guard at closing time as you help Circa discover the ultimate treasure – their identity.

Live History is a Governor General’s Award nominated theatre group that specializes in bringing local history to life.

Note: Please arrive 10-15 minutes (min.) before your show’s start time. There will be no further admittance after the show begins. The show will move guests throughout the house and includes stairs. If you have questions regarding accessibility, please contact 613-580-2088 or [email protected].
