The father of our country's ancestors hailed from Washington in Northeast England, now part of the coastal City of Sunderland. Generations have passed, but the historic home and grounds of the Washington family is cared for by the National Trust of the United Kingdom.

Legends and hundreds of years of Ghost Stories echo through the walls of Washington Old Hall, and Company | E, in partnership with the National Trust, the Sunderland City Council and Washington Old Hall are gathering those stories together for a site-specific evening-length program on the grounds of Old Hall in September, 2016.

Ghost Stories is made possible through the support of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, The National Trust at Washington Old Hall and the City of Sunderland.

Washington Old Hall - the historic home of the family of George Washington.
