Join our host Marie-Claire Gould (https://twitter.com/mariecgould) and guest Laura Kirwan-Ashman (https://twitter.com/Laura_K_A) the Writer and Director of Sour Hall, an original podcast drama is available to download from the 25th January, with a new episode releasing daily (free for Audible members, free with Audible’s 30-day trial).
OVERVIEW OF SOURHALL: Recorded in 360-degree sound on location in Yorkshire, this new podcast is a dramatic adaptation of the critically acclaimed Sour Hall, one of the short stories written by Naomi Booth for Hag. The truly terrifying Audible Original stars Lucy Fallon (Coronation Street, Don’t Rock The Boat) as George and Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) as Ash in a gripping neo-horror, haunted house story. Given it’s recording techniques the content is best listened to with headphones – but don’t listen in the dark!
When George inherits her family farm it’s supposed to be a new start for her and her partner Ash, an escape from the chaotic pace of Manchester life and a traumatic incident that’s casting a shadow over their relationship. George embraces country living and a burgeoning dairy business, but a lonely Ash can’t settle – the farm is isolated, and the villagers’ stares make clear their feelings about the inter-racial lesbian couple in their midst. Then there is the strange banging coming from the milking shed which George won’t let her enter… Ash is sure she can hear George whispering to someone or something inside… A presence haunts the farm, one that feeds on fear itself, and it’s hungry. To survive, Ash and George must face past traumas and embrace the things that go bump in the night, or risk being destroyed by them.
