Half podcast. Half radio play. All existential adventure.

Brian Lipson and Mark Wilson disinter the foetid corpse of Christopher Marlowe’s Elizabethan tragedy.

An event of almighty pentameter, technical glitches and post-dramatic deflation.

An interior journey of ambition and fear, faith and desire, heaven and hell.

An intimate and alarming experience for those interested in matters of the soul.

Light a candle, close your eyes, and let us whisper sweet diabolical nothings in your ears.
