SQUAD Productions presents GRACE – The story centres around Grace, who is on a badly-needed night out for her friend’s ‘coming-out party’.
SQUAD Productions presents GRACE, the first of a trilogy of radio plays
Prepare to be thrilled, blood to be spilled, and your innocence killed by Grace, a campy horror radio play written and directed by Robert Downes and produced by SQUAD Productions.
The story centres around Grace, who is on a badly-needed night out for her friend’s ‘coming-out party’. (Which is not a thing…what a hobgoblin…)
Follow Grace through the night, hear her evil, terrifying thoughts that will leave you wondering, “how does this girl even have friends?”.
