Sound the Alarm: Theatre for the Ears (Episode 1: STARMAN)

Within this 30 minute immersive sonic journey, we experience the crumbling galactic event of Daryl's internal and external world - like a blackhole, he is sucked into a self-induced victim of cancel culture.
Starman is a dark comedy about a 42-year-old man who has locked himself in his room for the rest of his life. Through his very unpopular podcast - Daryl (aka Starman) will take his internet “friends” on a journey into his chosen exile which may lead him to confront a part of himself he never knew existed.
