RENAISSANCE FEAST OF ALL HALLOW’S EVE
Producer/Directors: Denise & Kenn Wheeler
All Hallows Eve marks the end of autumn and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year often associated with things dank and dreary. During the Renaissance, many believed this time of year was also when the walls between our world and the world of spirits was thin and porous, enabling the spirits of the dead to pass through. People feared the return of spirits through this thin wall because they might damage their crops for the next season. As a result, to appease any spirits that would creep through, they would set up places at their dinner tables and offer the spirits food and drink. Join us at one such repast, as we celebrate the turning of the season with delicious food provided by Le Bebe Cakes Bakery, with eerie and macabre scenes from Renaissance authors such as William Shakespeare.
