You Can Sleep When You’re Dead ()

Produced by

Campbell House and Theatre Lab

Creators: Omar Hady and Michael Orlando


Campbell House


October 24th, 2013 – October 31st, 2013


This show explores the sudden death or passing of a person with unresolved issues so powerful that they do not fully crossover to the other side. The Campbell House will play host to those ghostly bodies who have remained.

With contributions from incredible Canadian writers and Dora Award winners, the creative team will execute a truly unique site-specific theatrical experience. Each piece is set in a different time period. The audience will be able to roam through the various floors and rooms of the now haunted Campbell House museum. You may be witness to a live heart being ripped out from a chest at a wake, a brutal strangling occurring in the dining room, human remains being cooked in the kitchen, an invitation to a secret society, and an exorcism on the second floor. All the while ghosts roam the home and stalk those who explore. (
