The latest Dark Shadows drama is now available. The Flip Side, by new writer Cody Quijano-Schell, focuses on spoilt rich girl Carolyn Stoddard.
“I'm a huge Dark Shadows fan and I love Carolyn.” says Quijano-Schell. “She's a whirlwind of a character. She transitions from being sweet and vulnerable to being a monstrous brat… often in the same scene. The Flip Side is about a night of fun that has gone horribly wrong. Forced to confront her troubled past and the legacy of her family, Carolyn's in a fight for her own survival as well as fighting for the lives of her loved ones. By the end of the story she has a terrible decision to make.””
The story also features a specially composed song by singer-songwriter Sean McGhee – one half of the band Artmagic with Richard Oakes from Suede, and currently on tour with the legend that is Alison Moyet. A full interview with Sean about his involvement in Dark Shadows can be found at http://www.artmagicmusic.com.
Dark Shadows: The Flip Side is now available for download, and CDs have been posted out today.
