The Film Awaits
As I listened to this for the second time I couldn't help but visualise the film. That is only possible when characters have real connection. The tension and heart break was palpable. An amazing job. Look forward to future works.
Incredible Audio Drama for Free!
It’s honestly amazing that these are free. Every single one of them draws you in and makes you listen. Sunburnt Country, The Fox’s Beard and Dracula are particularly good.
If you’re a fan of the Blacklist Table Reads (RIP) you’ll love this.
