“Susan Swayne” and the Bartitsu School of Arms

Announcing a new addition to the attractions of the second annual Bartitsu School of Arms (September 7-9 at Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts in Chicago, hosted by the Bartitsu Club of Chicago).

After visiting the stately Hegeler Carus Mansion in LaSalle, IL, and an extended private tour of the mansion’s 1870s-vintage gymnasium, School of Arms participants are invited to a Friday evening meal in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood, followed by the play Susan Swayne and the Bewildered Bride. Susan Swayne has been described as “Mary Poppins meets the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and features fencing, knife fighting and Bartitsu fight scenes.

Registration for the School of Arms also includes your complimentary ticket to see Susan Swayne. So, a visit to a historical gymnasium, a night of Victorian-era action theatre, two days of Bartitsu training and an Antagonisticathlon; better register for the 2012 Bartitsu School of Arms today!
