The latest instalment of Collapsing Horse’s weird, speculative and kinda funny Science Fiction podcast.
Each show is a recording of two stand-alone radio plays by different writers, each given license to speculate wildly about the other possible realities.
Performed live by the Collapsing Horse ensemble with live music and foley sounds, then broadcast to the world, this is War of the Worlds meets Monty Python.
This week’s episodes are:
Human History by Kerri Ward
EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS HARDER THAN IT SEEMED by Dylan Coburn Gray
Kerri Ward has a BA in Drama and English from Trinity College, Dublin, and an MA in Creative Writing from Queen’s University, Belfast.
