Gwen Part Ii of the G Trilogy
new short radio drama by Robert Downes and SQUAD Productions
Do you remember the worst day at school ever?
It can’t be worse than Gwen’s.
Prepare to be em-bar-razzed, mortified and bleedin’ scarlet for Gwen, a campy thriller radio play written by Robert Downes. In Gwen, the second segment of the G Trilogy, Gwen feels totally invisible in her new school. Listen to her attempt absolutely anything to get noticed, hear what happened in her old school and follow along as she learns that it can always get so much worse.
Don’t let lockdown get you down, tune into Gwen on 5th March 2021 at ko-fi.com/squad and relish the fact that you never have to endure school ever again.
The G Trilogy
Have you ever wanted to listen to someone else’s thoughts? Have you ever watched something happen to someone in real time and wondered, what could they have been thinking? Well, now you can. The G Trilogy follows three women’s stories as they live through the moment that changes their life forever. These uniquely crafted radio plays submerge the listener into a world where they can become so close to a character, they can actually hear their thoughts.
The G Trilogy is available from www.ko-fi.com/squad starting at only €3. Part one, Grace, is available to listen now. 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 craziest night of her life that will leave you wondering, how does this girl even have friends? To listen to Grace click here.
Listener discretion is advised. Contains adult language, violence and scenes of a sexual nature.
The G Trilogy is intended for ages 18+.
