The People Of Dickinson House

This special theatrical presentation will bring the people of Dickinson House in Manotick to life. Join the four Dickinson siblings – George, Charlotte, Willie and Bessie – as well as house maid Sarah Devlin and stable hand Peter Hicks at Dickinson House and the nearby Carriage Shed as each reflects on a pivotal moment in their lives during the 40 year period from 1871 to 1912.

In advance of the show guests will enjoy dinner at the Doyle House Hotel (The Miller’s Oven) and will be greeted there by owner Peter Doyle Junior. See our menu.

After dinner, the guests will be split into two groups each led by a guide. The groups will separately move through all three floors of Dickinson House and will also visit with Peter Hicks in the Carriage Shed.

At the end of the show, all of the guests will gather in the Carriage shed for a Q&A with the show writers and actors.

Due to the high demand for tickets, an additional show has been added for April 13. There is a maximum of only 30 tickets available for each of the shows on April 6, 7, 13, and 14. Tickets are $40 each and may be purchased by calling 613-692-6455 or by e-mailing

Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Dickinson House restoration fund.
