Recording time: 90 minutes total. Recording will be done on Quicktime remotely during a group Zoom session. Pickups will be done later.
The production will feature some French in the beginning with a transition to French-accented English. As noted, the "French" actors must be bilingual or have very convincing French accents. English roles will feature mild West Country accents native to the former Mercia in England.
10-part podcast to be posted on accompanying website and linked to social media. Non-paying gig - there will be credits on Stage 32 and for the lead actors, names and photos on the website. This is one long day's work for recording, with chance for paying film work if Piercing Time is picked up for film production.
Future podcasts in the series are already planned.
