About this event

*New dates added for December due to huge demand!*

Miss Eve Harrison requests the pleasure of your company at Miegunyah House for tea and games...

Back from its sold-out season at Anywhere Festival in May, Eve's Game returns to Miegunyah House for tea, feminism and sleuthing.

Enter historic Miegunyah House and step into the world of Eve Harrison, Brisbane's it-girl of 1884. Eve has returned from her debut in London and is inviting you to play Paschal, the lady-detective game that is sweeping London.

"There are a few occasions when I come out of a show and can’t wait to see it again. Immediately... A must-see show that is both fun and thought-provoking." Catherine Lawrence, Creative Futures

A combination of immersive theatre and sleuthing, Eve's Game presents a feminist perspective on the life of a young woman in the late Victorian era. Based on the life of a real Brisbane socialite, Eve's Game explores rites of passage in an era of social change and emerging feminism. Join Eve for tea on the verandah and become her apprentice detective in the game of Paschal. Help her to investigate the disappearance of a young woman while exploring Miegunyah, discovering clues and solving puzzles.

"Such a pleasant and intimate theatre experience...This unique and intimate show is a cross between Downton Abbey and Enola Holmes." Josie Montano, Theatre Travels.
"Enthralling, entertaining, enjoyable. A fantastic immersive theatre experience, where the venue is a vital component of the performance." Catherine Lawrence, Creative Futures

In line with current health directives, mask-wearing for Eve's Game is essential. A mask will be offered to you at the venue if you do not have one.

Can my group buy individual tickets and still sit together? Yes, buying your tickets together or separately will not affect grouping in the performance.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? This event will be restricted to over 12s only. Due to the nature of Miegunyah House, it is not suitable for younger children, and we ask that you supervise children carefully for the preservation of Miegunyah's unique collection.

Is Miegunyah House accessible? Miegunyah is an old house. It is unfortunately unsuitable for wheelchair access but is accessible for walking sticks etc. The audience normally enters via ten wide stairs at the front of the house. However, if you have difficulty with stairs, please contact us to arrange a more accessible entry. We have had several patrons in the past with mobility challenges whom we catered for.

We do not offer refunds for any other reason. No refund requests can be processed within 36 hours of the event commencing.

"Written with a feminist lens, Willans has skilfully written a piece which immerses audiences into the potential thoughts of women in the 19th Century." Georgia McKenzie, Anywhere Festival Reviewer.
