2015 Lonely Ghosts Walk: The Trials of Daniel Daverne

The murky legal waters of one of Perth’s founding denizens, Daniel Daverne, lies at the heart of The Lonely Ghosts Walk, which will start each Friday at the Classic Theatre Festival (54 Beckwith Street East, at Harvey) and traverse through the historic Burying Ground, Court House, the Red House (Adamson’s Inn), the Morris store, the King’s Stores,  and McMartin House. Along the way, a descendant of Daverne, Melissa, a modern-day tour guide, is suddenly transported back in time to Perth’s early years, when her great-great-great grand uncle was, he felt, unjustly disgraced as he faced  charges of embezzlement and abuse of government powers as he tried to administer the complicated and conflicting demands placed upon him as superintendent of Lanark, Leeds, Grenville and Carleton Counties. Like Ann Glascott of the Perth through the Ages tour, the elder Daverne seeks to clear his name as well so that he can find peace and no longer wander purgatory, along the way confronting Rev. Bell, Roderick Matheson, and Colonel Francis Cockburn, among others.
