This one is a bit of an unknown quantity and perhaps falls as much into game-playing as it does into theatre. But hey ho, theatre is a broad church and it’s been getting broader over the last few months and that is no bad thing. Created by The Pandora Network it takes the form of an interactive week-long mystery that you have to solve after a series of live on-line interactive encounters with field agents. To be honest, it sounds as much hell to me as a Zoom quiz, but the company have already had a success with something similar called Burying the Hatchet. It should offer escapist fun for those keen to be armchair Agatha Christies.
There is a new presence in the quaint little town of Pondermere. The Nightlight Circus arrived recently, setting up their tents and enchanting the locals with their strange and creepy attractions every night. It was all magic and music and fun and games until some local children went missing without a trace. Can you help Agents Felix Chase and Beatrice Blackthorn find the children – before it’s too late? “The Pandora Network - Nighmare Circus” is a week long, interactive remote experience that you can take part in from the comfort of your own home. Listen to the brief, interact with our live Field Agents “Felix Chase” and “Beatrice Blackthorn”, evaluate the evidence and work together to solve a brand new mystery.

Each story presents a new and unique mystery to solve and can be enjoyed individually or as a continual series, warmly celebrating everyone’s favourite tropes from supernatural stories and murder mysteries.
