SIX CHAMBERS

An original, site specific theatrical event,
devised and directed by Michael Nowicki

 
Beneath the Blue Onion Dome, Hartford's most famous landmark, sits the former Colt Firearms Manufacturing Company factory. Join us for a theatrical event inside of this old factory tracing the stories of the people that have toiled and triumphed on this land for the last 400 years. From the time when Great Meadow was the sacred grounds of the Pequot, through the factory's development by Colonel Samuel Colt and to its present state, this important story of Hartford is told through interactive and immersive theater.
