Jamieson Ridenhour and Hayley Heninger discuss their acclaimed project’s latest installment.
From spooky tours to costume-friendly concerts to at-home options, there’s something for nearly everyone in search of holiday festivities.
“Palimpsest” releases new episodes bi-weekly on Tuesdays.
The co-creators of the Asheville-based audio drama perform two episodes live on Aug. 12 at The Magnetic Theatre.
The production straddles a line between comedy and drama. “The director and I went back and forth on how to market it,” Jamieson Ridenhour says. “Most of the play is like a comedy and there’s a lot of funny dialogue. But it is quite dark. I tend to be a horror writer, but this is not a horror play.”
“The storyline this season is less about Maeve being supernew to town, and more about her finding her niche and putting herself out there,” co-creator Lea McLellan says. “Maeve was often the sounding board for these other, wackier characters. For this season, I wanted Maeve to come out of her shell and show her true colors and personality.”
