Audience with the Ghost Finder revived on radio

I’ve adapted Audience with the Ghost Finder, my stage play based on William Hope Hodgson’s tales of Carnacki the ghost finder, for the radio. Part one of the play will air on Wandsworth Radio at 6pm GMT on Sunday 8 March 2015. Part two will air at the same time the following Sunday.

You can listen live to Wandsworth Radio at wandsworthradio.com or using the TuneIn app. If you were out of reach of London when we staged the play in 2013, this is your opportunity to experience it!

Blackshaw Theatre, the company that produced the stage versions at Wandsworth Arts Festival and the London Horror Festival 2013, are also producing the radio version – and broadcasting it as part of the company’s weekly Wandsworth Radio show, the Blackshaw Arts Hour.

We’ve reassembled the original cast, with Alexander Pankhurst as Carnacki and Ceridwen Smith as Florence Allenby. In both stage versions Ceridwen also played Judith Allenby and Dodgson, but tripling up parts makes a lot less sense on the radio, so this new version introduces Ellie Pitkin as Judith Allenby and Richard Stratton as Dodgson.

Ellie also directs, with assistance from Vikki Weston. The producer is Helen Johnson, and Blackshaw’s Radio Producer and Content Manager is Iasha Chapman.
