I have never really liked live audio theater. I find it less immersive. Largely because it’s not polished. I prefer something that’s been edited to perfection. And I don’t like hearing an audience. But there’s so little out there that I think is truly great, I’m trying to be open to it. And I’ve liked what I’ve heard from IBRT enough that when this one hit my podcatcher, I gave it a try.
It wasn’t bad. Good acting, good story – or, good enough anyway. And it’s a simple story – human drama. I give this one a bit higher marks because I’ve kind of lived something similar. Minimal production, so not much to go wrong as long as the story and acting is there and it was.
I haven’t brought myself to use a rating system yet, but, everything I listen to is either something I save because I want to hear it again whenever I like or I say once was enough. And once was enough with this one but I have nothing bad to say about it.
Recorded before a live audience, this drama of love and loss stars Linda Faith and Aela Mackintosh.
