Fifteen years after the fallout of a massive energy crisis, steadfast homesteaders in rural Maine slog through an off-grid life. This bucolic existence is turned upside-down when John Prophet, a soldier still fighting an unwinnable war, arrives with word of a powerful military force setting up in the ashes of old New York. His message falls on deaf ears except for those of two youths, Maria and Luke, who buck their parents’ wishes and set off on a journey filled with grim survivalists, rugged characters, religious maniacs, and dangers of nature that have grown up in this strange land.

In what was once New York, life is a tenuous and desperate thing, and the arrival of a military force that offers safety at the expense of freedom is welcomed with open arms. Yet this regime is only the beginning of the troubles in this region. Out of the West, a man comes announcing a great holy war that is to come, and from within the ranks of the military regime comes a man who will stop at nothing to take control of their weapons to sacrifice to his dark God.

This lush “mind movie” features over thirty actors, was recorded on locations throughout southern Maine, and features an original score and the production talents of award-winning producer Fred Greenhalgh. Called “epic” by BBC Radio 4 Producer John Dryden, this audio theater production is sure to thrill.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This epic tale of postapocalyptic America is truly audio theatre at its finest. Narrated by a large and talented group of performers, the story unfolds in rural Maine in the years after the fallout from an energy crisis. Layered with realistic sound effects, a rousing score, and subtle shifts in tone, this recording offers a perfect theatricality that will delight listeners from start to finish. Kate Gurney is, simply put, wonderful as the young Maria, who sets off on an adventure with brother Luke (voiced by the gifted Philip Hobby). This audio production will entertain listeners both young and old for years to come.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)

  • “A huge achievement…Epic! A fabulous mix that takes you by the throat. In so much drama it’s just about the voices. Here you connect with the sheer physical effort. You can sense the actors sweating.”

    John Dryden, award-winning director for BBC Radio 4

  • “What sets this production apart from other full-cast audio dramas is the fact that it was recorded in the field. The result is hard to achieve in the studio and brings a unique sense of ‘being there.’ The large number of characters and the switching between two plotlines are ably handled by the cast. The need to focus while listening is rewarded by a fresh experience of audio drama.”
