NOTE: The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor is still on indefinite hiatus. However, Chris has finished his second round of treatments and will once again be able to join us at the table, so we will be running intermittent sessions until The Nettle Crusades wraps, at which point Candlewick will resume regular updates.
In this frightful episode, our cast of bizarre foundlings are thrown into an investigation which may spell ruin for some of their most treasured relationships. Someone at the Candlewick Home has been holding Dr. Candlewick’s daughter, Wisteria, prisoner in a makeshift basement rubber room, keeping her drugged with powerful narcotics. During their quest to discover the culprit and his (or her) unspeakable reasons for doing this, the orphans will be forced to confront one of their housemates who has regained the use of his commanding telepathic voice, and little Noch will unwittingly provoke a confrontation with the graveyard ghosts from the family cemetery. Can Duncan, Karl, Dotty, Noch, Cecil and Jareth get to the bottom of this mystery, rescue Wisteria and defeat Barry, or will they end up prisoners themselves? More importantly, what will become of Noch’s teddy bear? Listen to find out!
