Dundas Little Theatre is preparing to bring to the stage Ghosts of 1812, a new play by David Tysdale.
Commissioned by DLT to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812, Ghosts of 1812 tells the story of a young man who is haunted by real phantoms from the past that provide an unexpected insight into the War of 1812.
