This Mortal Coil (2020)

We’re very excited to announce our first foray into the world of audio plays:


When a Hamlet-inspired murder ruins her dress rehearsal, Elissa’s delighted. The detective’s an old actor pal and she’d forgotten her lines anyway.

Lured in by the promise of Jammie Dodgers, Elissa pursues a dastardly killer with a penchant for Shakespeare. A comedy audio murder mystery by award-winning writer James Beagon.

Download & Streaming

Released episodically, all parts will be available for streaming and download in July 2020. You will find them listed here as they become available, but for the most up-to-date info about releases, please follow our Facebook and Twitter pages.

We’re also happy to announce that This Mortal Coil will also be listed as part of Buxton Festival Fringe’s online programme for 2020!

Like all theatre companies, the Coronavirus pandemic has provided new challenges for us. This production will be being released for free but should you wish to donate and assist us in making even more audio work, there will be a link available to do so alongside each online release.
