The Uninvited - Gallier House
The Uninvited - Gallier House

A collaboration between the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses (HGGHH) and Goat in the Road Productions (GRP), The Uninvited is set in 1874, six years after architect James Gallier Jr.’s death and in the waning years of Reconstruction. Aglae Gallier, two of her daughters, and the house staff are preparing for an evening of entertaining when a mob of young men passes by, seeking to re-segregate the integrated school next door. This event is based on a real-life incident that took place in December, 1874.

Here are some things to know before the show:

The Uninvited begins promptly at 6 pm and 8 pm. The box office opens 45 minutes before the show. Please arrive 20 minutes before your reservation (by 5:40 pm or 7:40 pm) to claim your tickets. The show does not start late and there is no late seating.

Unclaimed reservations will be released starting at 5:55 pm (for 6 pm show) or 7:55 pm (for 8pm show).

During the show, you will be moving around, so please wear appropriate clothing and shoes. In addition, any large bags will need to be left in the box office area (which will be staffed) during the show.
