‘TIL DEATH DO US PART
The Edinburgh Dungeon set to launch ‘The Green Lady’ following six figure investment
The capital’s dark and deadly history is set to be brought to life like never before as The Edinburgh Dungeon unveils a brutal crime of passion in its new show The Green Lady.
A tale of love, loss, betrayal and death, The Green Lady will launch on Thursday 26March as a permanent fixture on the renowned Dungeon tour. Revisiting one of Edinburgh’s more mysterious ghost stories, the Dungeon’s latest tale is rich in haunting drama and spine tingling intrigue.
The new show signals the award winning visitor attraction’s biggest investment since the Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom was introduced in 2009. Over £250,000 has been dedicated to creating stunning sets, breath-taking special effects and theatrical costume.
Johnny Campbell, general manager, The Edinburgh Dungeon commented: “We have a really fun, playful side at The Edinburgh Dungeon but this year we were keen to explore the capital’s darker stories uncovering Auld Reekie’s sinister past.
“The story of The Green Lady is a really tragic tale with all the right ingredients – romance, deceit and retribution. We’ve made a significant investment to introduce some really spectacular new sets and special effects so visitors can expect a seriously thrilling experience.”
Throughout March fans of The Edinburgh Dungeon will be able to get sneak previews of what is in store via @EdinDungeon and the Dungeon’s Facebook page, with opportunities to win tickets to the VIP launch night. The Green Lady will open to the public on 26 March 2015 but tickets are on sale now; for more information visit www.thedungeons.com/edinburgh.
