Gather by the Ghost Light

GATHER BY THE GHOST LIGHT is storytelling podcast in radio theater format. Think of the Ghost Light as your campfire. Gather around and listen to stories from a variety of genres. Playwright, Jonathan Cook, is the host of the series and most of the stories you hear were originally written as short stage plays that have been produced in theatres around the World. Short play festivals have become wildly popular in recent years and they have given emerging playwrights a platform for their work. The audio plays produced on this podcast are mostly selected from Festival Award Winners giving these talented playwrights an even wider audience for their stories. We welcome you to join us in this journey as we extend the voices of emerging playwrights!
