Quotes & Highlights
“Last night, I dreamed I went to Mandacrest again…”
Where portraits bleed, werewolves howl and sinister servants skulk. Where every day is a dark and stormy night and Lord Edgar has serious “mummy” issues. Will “She who sleeps, one day wake”? Will Lord Edgar finally shoot the right wolf? Will Nicodemus have a good hair day? Will the turtle lay another egg and are they edible? Will Lady Enid survive the night and find a dress that doesn’t make her thighs look fat?
The answers to these questions and more can be found by attending The Mystery of Irma Vep.
