Five hundred years in the future, the universe’s misfits, mountebanks, and weirdos are all condemned to an eternity of torment in the prison-world of Game Over–the place where you go when you run out of continues. They say no one has ever dared to mount an escape…until now!
Audience of Two is thrilled to present our first fully-produced original radio play. Originally born as a sketch comedy radio show at Swarthmore College, Hork! was one of the few episodes we produced back in the day that we felt had, as the pro’s say, “legs,” or as we say, “discernible characters, jokes, and a story (sort of).” Eight years later, and with no shortage of re-writes and touch-ups, it was an absolute thrill to hear it performed by our dynamite collaborators, set to the original music of Tom Swafford. We hope it will enliven your next otherwise-boring commute, road trip, or pasta-preparation (though headphones are strongly recommended!).
We are so excited for you to hear and enjoy Hork! It’s priced at pay-what-you-will because the most important thing to us is for you to be able to check it out, so if all’s you got is 2 ears and $0, we sincerely thank you for listening! That said, this took us many many hours of writing and production (and some not-inexpensive audio equipment) to create, so we offer a suggested donation of $20, but would be grateful for anything you can contribute towards our ongoing efforts to ROCK YOUR MIND.
We look forward to bringing you our next production very soon. BLAST OFF!
