The Low Light Narrated Drama Podcast

Walk with me down Mimmers Lane into the low light and spend a few days in the Green with the human and not-so-human residents of Lower Leigh as its dark past is clawed from the ground. Meet the neighbours of Lower Leigh - the well-meaning, the curious and the devious, as they struggle with deranged Mims to uncover the truth, all while going about their humdrum daily business and continuing with their petty battles and secret yearnings as ordinary northern folk do, under the watchful eye of Owl and a bright crescent moon. Low Light is an ongoing narrated audio drama set in a northern English town. It has a dark edge and a sense of humour. One cold February evening, a Storyteller dies suddenly, bringing Officer Ruby Hussain into the lives of the locals as she sets out to track down the killer but soon realises there’s more to the place and the people of Lower Leigh than first meets the eye. Recommended to listen in episode order. Written, narrated and produced by Melanie Crawley for Crawley Voice Studio.

Low Light 

An ongoing narrated audio-drama with a dark edge and a sense of humour, set in a northern English town, under the moon and the watchful eye of the owl.

A Storyteller dies, leaving their old tales to menace the parish (as was) of Lower Leigh unless the neighbours can sort themselves out and come up with a plan.

A bit like an audio-book soap.
