GHOST HUNT: Mysterious Middlesex, is partially based on the more traditional Hall-Mills Double Homicides stage-play, THOU SHALT NOT by Thinkery & Verse, which is set to reprise its run in New Brunswick, NJ September of 2022, marking the Centennial Anniversary of the 1922 tragedies. GHOST HUNT is part audio play and part treasure hunt. This unique experience is entirely Covid safe and uses a free gaming app called ‘GeoCaching’, in which audiences will track, hunt, and discover hidden curated caches at locations tied to Hall-Mills murders and 1920s mysteries in Middlesex County, NJ. GHOST HUNT is a geo-cached audio adventure that invites participants to experience the story of a tragic double homicide at the sites where the murders occurred, and justice was lost. “This is an innovative, experimental, and experiential audio adventure,” says season one collaborator Ania Upstill of Butch Mermaid Productions. Let the games begin September 16.
Season Two GHOST HUNT: Mysterious Middlesex was made possible thanks to grant funding provided by the Middlesex County Board of County Commissioners through a grant award from the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund.
