Skin III The Final Incision; audio thriller starring Samantha Boffin, nominated for best actress in a Radio Drama at the 2020 One Voice Conference. It’s been nine years since vegan serial killer Vivian Shorewood skinned the first of her twenty-eight victims. She receives a call from Oakleaf Nursing Home, in Wollaton, Nottingham, where her mother, 84-year-old Hilary, has taken a turn for the worse. Hilary’s Care Worker intimates to Vivian that maybe she should pay her mother a visit, sooner rather than later. What Vivian doesn’t know is that Hilary has both something to tell her daughter, something she has kept a secret her entire life, and to ask of her one last request.
Starring Samantha Boffin, nominated for Best Actress in a Radio Drama at the 2020 One Voice Conference. It’s been four years since vegan serial killer Vivian Shorewood skinned the first of her sixteen victims in what she deemed a ‘boutique-culling’ of London’s more undesirable inhabitants. Frustrated that her five previous psychiatrists haven’t truly been able to embrace or understand, and in some cases even believe her actions, she decided to make an appointment to see Dr. Martin Boyden (Mich Howell), a respected expert in his field. ‘Skin II The Session’ is their first meeting, which happened last Thursday at 11.45 am.
Nominated for best Actress in a Radio Drama at the 2020 One Voice Conference. A few months ago, London-based Vivian Shorewood decided to take a stand, albeit a small one, against world injustice, and began her attempt to redress the balance. She selected one particularly offensive and repugnant individual, and after following a carefully executed plan she lured him into her trap, immobilised him, and brought him back to her cellar where she proceeded to… skin him. ‘Skin’ follows the first night of her fight.

. For the third year running, we hosted STAGE FRIGHT to launch the fabulous London Horror Festival. Three plays short listed and performed live to special guest judge Seth Patrick. First up we had Special Delivery by Elizabeth Adlington, which focused on a couple following the delivery of a rather unusual teddy bear. Next came Tears from the Pillow by Gabrielle Wright, a touching yet spine-chilling tale about a man in a coma (we daren’t reveal any more). Finally, Pete Barrett’s Forever Amber told the story of a cantankerous lord with a passion for taxidermy. The award went to Pete Barrett’s FOREVER AMBER, but you can listen to all three productions here.
