Seven Tyrants Theatre presents Judge Dee and the Chinese Garden Murders


A haunted house like no other in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown

WARNING: Not for young children or the faint of heart!

THIS HALLOWEEN...... the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden...... is HAUNTED.

In a distant Chinese town, you're hot on the heels of a cold blooded killer. You make your way through the narrow streets as chaos erupts among the frightened citizens. Barbarians outside the walls wait for the signal to attack as dead ghosts of a massacred army roam the night. Will you spot the clues? Can you solve the crime before it's too late?

Are you brave enough to make it out alive?

Join us again this Halloween as we transform the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden into a terrifying haunted house. Featuring nearly 30 actors, dancers and musicians, this one-of-a-kind experience is inspired by Robert van Gulik's Judge Dee murder mysteries. Brave the Garden's haunted pathways, uncover clues, then warm your bones at the old Tea House as you piece together the crime.

Who is Judge Dee?

Judge Dee was a famous detective in Tang Dynasty China. Inspired by the many stories celebrating his impeccable record of catching criminals, 20th Century author Robert van Gulik wrote a series of original murder mysteires starring Judge Dee - China's Sherlock Holmes. Judge Dee is now the subject of several major motion pictures, including Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame.
