Welcome to the void
The year is 1958. A string of disappearances leads intrepid junior reporter Mary Price out to investigate a mysterious, if dubiously credible, tip.
When her tape recorder is discovered years later, the story revealed shocks the world.
RadioActive's Marian Mohamed, Ayesha Mohammed and Simone St. Pierre Nelson bring a fictional tale of paranoia and isolation.
