|Last Weekend!! Innocent or Guilty??
At the Old Courthouse
August 5 – 7
Join Dayton History for an interactive courtroom drama at the Old Courthouse. This summer, the sensational 1896 Bessie Little murder case will be re-tried, with the verdict decided by you – the audience. After listening to evidence from both the prosecution and defense, spectators will be left to determine whether Bessie Little met death as a result of suicide – or murder. With one of Dayton’s most notorious court cases re-enacted, audience members will learn what law and order was like in the Gem City at the turn of the twentieth century.
Performances will be held on the following days:
Friday August 5, 7:30 pm
Saturday August 6, 7:30 pm
Sunday August 7, 3:00 pm
$10 – Dayton History Members
$12 – Non-members
Suggested ages: 14 and up
