It has been a wonderful opportunity to work with new collaborators, first and foremost Ellie Keel, and a thrilling chance to move into a new-to-us medium. This season showcases an incredible breadth of talent, our communal resilience, and inherent desire to create. We are thrilled to bring these pieces to you at home until we can meet again. "

Ellie Keel commented, "I am delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with 45North to curate and produce this outstanding series of work. This is EKP's first foray into audio drama and it's a hugely enjoyable journey. I am particularly pleased to be working both with regular EKP creatives including Margaret Perry, Jessica Lazar, Mary Higgins and Ell Potter, as well as forging new relationships with immensely talented artists such as Amanda Wilkin and Lettie Precious."
