99% of evidence that alleges to be paranormal is either erroneous or fraudulent. That leaves 1% of information that, at present, defies explanation.
A series of monthly live audio dramas with a difference…
Amy Sutton and Jack Kristianson are your presenters – immersing you in a short fully illustrated presentation that will enlighten you with a tale of some aspect of the paranormal.
After an interval, the roughly one hour-long audio drama begins – recorded live for web transmission – with a cast of up to nine actors weaving a most captivating tale.
The Coonian Ghost
BBC’s Northern Ireland’s Greatest Haunts presenter and author Andy Matthews investigated one of the best known and most famous Irish ghost stories – The Coonian Ghost.
It is the story of a poor family living in a cottage in Fermanagh in 1913 who are plagued by a terrifying poltergeist, rumoured to be that of an old man who had been murdered in the house previously.
Andy claims the location to be one of the scariest he has ever visited as a paranormal investigator.
Now a writer, Andy has turned his experiences into a play which will be recorded live on stage, as a full-cast audio theatre production. This is the world premier of Morai – The Coonian Ghost and the recording will be aired later in the year.

He says “We use live performance and audio drama to tell breathtaking, epic and powerful stories. For us storytelling is one of the most powerful techniques we have as humans to communicate, motivate and to make a difference.”
