December's Dark Shadows story, A Collinwood Christmas, is now available to download. Enjoy a spot of festive spirit!
Dark Shadows (1966 - 1971) was a US TV series which told the story of the cursed Collins family. It was recently remade as a film starring Johnny Depp.
A Collinwood Christmas is set in the Collins family home and tells the story of what happens when the grieving and miserly Jamison Collins has to join forces with wild gypsy Ivanka Romano against vengeful spirits from the past. The story is written by acclaimed actress and playwright Lizzie Hopley, who also reprises her role as Ivanka. It co-stars Jamison Selby, son of original series actor David Selby.
'The CD release of this story should be available soon,' says producer Joseph Lidster, 'but we wanted to make doubly sure that listeners would have the story in time for Christmas. It's definitely one to listen to on a cold winter's night...'
Work is also continuing on the next season of Dramatic Readings, with further details to be announced in early 2013.
