The Garden Conservancy’s National Open Days Program
Charleston Horticultural Society
Walls of entwined ivy, dazzling blooms, and sun-dappled fern fronds abound in Charleston’s botanical sanctuaries. For the eighth year, Spoleto Festival USA collaborates with the Charleston Horticultural Society and The Garden Conservancy to open the Holy City’s garden gates for self-guided tours. Each Saturday tour features six different private gardens, promising two full days of exploration and beauty in these artfully cultivated spaces.

From the Book by Susan Hill
A ghost play
It all begins innocently enough. A lawyer—obsessed with a curse that he believes was cast over his family—hires a skeptical young actor to help tell his tale and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. But as they reach further into his darkest memories, the two men find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds. A brilliant study in atmosphere, illusion, and controlled horror, this gripping ghost story has been terrifying audiences in London’s West End for 30 years.
