This play was recorded by the individual actors at home using voice memos on their phones/tablets. The individual lines were then emailed to Chris Page, mixed together and adjusted using Cyberlink’s Audio Director software and Nero’s Wave Editor software. Sound effects were supplied courtesy of royalty-free and copyright free resources. At no time were social distancing rules and government tier guidelines ignored!

Donations Appreciated

Yes, the play is free to listen to. However, we still have bills to pay so if you would like to make a contribution here to go towards our annual rent then please click here to go to our GoFundMe page.  All donations would be very much appreciated.
