October 21st, 2017 - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
On Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017 at 2 p.m., the museum will present the theatrical murder-mystery, “Who Did In the Delaware Ducks?” Created by Zwaanendael Museum staff, the play is based on an actual case that was recorded in the “Court Records of Sussex County, Del., 1677–1710.” In that case, from June 1687, Arthur Starr, a resident of Second St. in Lewes, discovered that two of his ducks had been deliberately killed. As part of the play, museum visitors will serve as detectives, meeting the alleged perpetrator and searching for clues to determine who committed this heinous crime. Guests of all ages will enjoy participating in this historical whodunit.
“Who Did In the Delaware Ducks?” will be presented outside on the museum’s grounds or, in case of inclement weather, inside on the museum’s 2nd floor (entry via staircase; no elevator).
Admission is free but, due to space restrictions, reservations are required by calling 302-645-1148 no later than Oct. 20, 2017.
