We Apologise for the Inconvenience Audio

“What fun, excellent writing, very much in Douglas’s vein and a convincing insight into the workings of his mind.”

Simon Jones, “Arthur Dent”

The smash-hit play about Douglas Adams’ war with words comes to audio in this professionally recorded adaptation featuring the cast of the play!

It’s 1984 and author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams has been locked away in a hotel by his publisher to finish his new book, already months late.

But with a whole universe of distractions, including a talking plastic duck who knows far too much about him, is finishing the book infinitely improbable?

Listen to an extract from the play below:

The play will shortly be available on CD featuring bonus interviews with cast and crew and limited edition gatefold vinyl. Keep watching @5064Productions on Twitter for when these go on sale.

The Hungry Moon

On the black moors of northern England in the shadow of an modern missile base, a band of Druids enact their pagan rites… Rites which unleash a nightmare vision of two unspeakable horrors – ancient supernatural evil and  nuclear catastrophe…

Room 5064 Productions are producing a full cast audio drama adaptation of classic folk horror novel The Hungry Moon, with permission and input from its legendary author Ramsey Campbell. 

First published in 1986, The Hungry Moon won the British Fantasy Award for Best Novel. Set in an isolated Peak District village, it brilliantly combines the fear of a nuclear holocaust with the resurgence of an ancient supernatural evil. 

Ramsey Campbell is an English horror fiction writer, editor and critic who has been writing for well over 50 years. He is the author of over 30 novels and hundreds of short stories, many of them widely considered classics in the field. 

THE HUNGRY MOON by Ramsey Campbell, dramatized for audio by Ian Winterton, will be produced by Ian Winterton and Room 5064’s Creative Director Gareth Kavanagh and is scheduled to be released as a full-cast 140-minute audio drama in October 2020 with an RRP of £12.99 for download, or £15.99 for a double CD with download.
