With Your Name Upon My Lips

Presented by Troutman Sanders

Encounter the strange and mysterious as you dive into the 1920s. Explore the twists and turns inside the Hermitage home as the boundaries between reality and illusion are blurred in this one-of-a-kind, immersive experience.

With Your Name Upon My Lips is a completely original piece of theater created for the Hermitage Museum & Gardens by Virginia Stage Company. This site-specific piece features talented local performers from CORE Theatre Ensemble. Guests become a part of the performance as they wander through the museum rooms and discover intriguing scenes and performers. Each evening a cash bar will also be available with beer, wine, and a 1920s-inspired cocktail menu.

About the Piece
With Your Name explores the duplicity of the 1920s, a decade of excess following on the heels of the violence of World War I. As soldiers returned from WWI, they had to find a way to navigate a home-front that was completely unchanged in their absence. Although these men may have appeared strong and unaltered on the surface, they were invisibly marred within themselves. With Your Name places guests on the precipice between the glamour of the 1920s and the horror of trench warfare. They'll sip on cocktails as they bring to light what lies beneath the frivolity of a swinging welcome home party.

Due to its dark nature and partial-nudity, performances are recommended for 18+. Guests should expect to be standing/walking for 90 minutes; some scenes will require climbing stairs.
