Staged within the Laurel Room at the iconic Whiting Mills, FRINGE will be part of a continuing initiative by the Mill to foster an eclectic mix of art and artisans. This Victorian New England mill-turned-arts community along the Still River in Winsted, CT was once home to Winsted Hosiery, the largest hosiery manufacturer in Connecticut. Whiting Mills, LLC was established in June of 2004 when Jean Paul and Eva Blachere purchased the 135,000 square ft complex. This historic mill was turned into studios that are now home to artists, craftspeople, photographers, herbalists, a hobby shop, and more. It is to be the future home of the nationally acclaimed American Mural Project.

Doors open at 7:15pm, which allows you just enough time to explore the building and check out Lill Curio Shop in Suite 320 (next to the Laurel Room).

Lill Curio Shop is a spot that combines the owners’ love of books and vintage art with her passion for Steampunk and Victorian collectibles. Selling an assortment of props that were used for book cover projects along with pieces from private collections of
vintage photos, postcards, natural objects, and antique findings, along with hand-crafted jewelry, artwork and prints, you are bound to find something you cannot leave without!

Opening Night Tonight!!

Directed by our very own, Keith Paul!

One of Agatha Christie’s most ingenious murder mysteries!  Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who died two years previously but as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.

“There is an ingenious display of suspects, as if lids were being taken off wells of depravity and hastily put back.” – Lawrence Kitchin, The Observer

“The impact is tremendous… Just when the murder seems solved … Miss Christie pulls her almighty knock out punch. I admit her complete victory.” – London Evening Standard

“It kept last night’s audience in a state of stunned uncertainty; guessing wrongly to the last.”  – Philip Hope-Wallace, The Guardian
