About the Book
In 1923 a visitation occurred. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the world’s most famous medium, Margery Crandon, both came to call on the Elmwood home of Thomas Glendenning Hamilton: one time member of the Manitoba Medical Association, Member of the Legislative Assembly, and Spirit Photographer. What happened the night they joined hands around the seance circle would haunt them the rest of their lives.

“Theatre this good puts the truth in the oft-repeated assertion that Winnipeg’s arts scene is world-class. In its setting and inspiration, The Elmwood Visitation is a bona fide Manitoban work, yet it explores themes grand enough to engage almost any theatre-going audience.” —Uniter
