Wild Women and Wine
Saturday, March 10, 2018, 07:00pm - 09:00pm

The public is invited to celebrate Women’s History Month at the Barker Mansion on Saturday, March 10.

Back and revamped for it’s second year, Wild Women and Winewill highlight the unconventional women who have shaped Northwest Indiana history through the decades.

The evening begins at 7 pm Central Time with wine and sweets. The highlight of the event will be a performance from Metamorphis Traveling Theatre titled The Duneland Diaries. During the show, which will be held in the mansion’s Drawing Room, two of the eccentric, eye-turning women of La Porte county will meet head-to-head. Diana of the Dunes and Belle Gunness will discuss their fates over tea, complete with music, laughter and bitter rivalry.

“We featured both Belle and Diana during our presentation at last year’s Wild Women and Wine,” said Barker Mansion Director Jessica Rosier. “This historical fiction play is fun way to expand upon their stories, with the wonderful help of Metamorphis Traveling Theatre.”

The evening will close at 9 pm, after guests have had the opportunity to view all three floors of the mansion.
