Black Canoes

Official Blurb


My Review

This is another full cast audio drama from the Seeing Eye Theater that runs for about a hour.

A potter dissatisfied with his art and being unable to replicate an ancient glazing technique flips and  ends up destroying the work of months of a rampage of pot smashing. A visiting trainee potter takes his hand and leads him on an adventure.

This one is a bit "out there". The story is cohesive but it is definitely one that tries to stretch your brain. Think of it as modern urban fantasy. The woman who takes the potter on the adventure inhabits a world different from his (and ours) and she leads him on a path of discovery, mystery, adventure and sacrifice.

It's very well done, the acting believeable, the sound effects and music perfectly blended to create the atmosphere. Not really my sort of thing, but in the end I did enjoy it.

Reading 3/3
Production 3/3
Story 2/3

Total Score 8/9
