The social, which is part of GCU’s popular Biographies at The Court series, gives audiences a glimpse into the lives of Edith and George Gould and their seven children. The performances are staged in the Mansion on Georgian Court’s historic Lakewood campus. The Mansion, completed in 1898, was home to the Gould family for more than 20 years.

Tickets are $42 per person and include the performance and a tea luncheon. Because availability is limited, prepurchase of tickets is required for all performances. For further information or to make reservations, please contact the Office of Conferences and Special Events at 732.987.2263 or
