Campfire Radio Theater – “The Road Ends at the Sea”

Back on May 7, 1982, just over 40 years ago, CBC radio aired “The Road Ends at the Sea,” an excellent tale by award-winning writer Tim Wynne-Jones. I’m proud to announce that Campfire Radio Theater has created a new production of this wonderful story. On top of that, it features an excellent cast and the ever-present, high-quality production of John Ballentine.

Composer side note: Due to the nature of this story, I took a more abstract, dark ambient approach that was an absolute pleasure to immerse myself into.

Haunted by lost love, a successful writer revisits college friends manning a remote lighthouse on the Canadian coast, only to find a mysterious harbinger of doom waiting offshore.

Warning: Contains explicit language and frightening situations.

From the audio play written by Tim Wynne Jones

Adapted, directed and produced by John Ballentine
