Reggie and Aislinn for Christmas

Our friends and regular New Escapologist contributors, Reggie C. King and Aislínn Clarke, are the masterminds behind Wireless Mystery Theatre.

Anyone who came to our Issue 6 launch party in Edinburgh last year will already have experienced their splendor.

A couple of weeks ago, WMT played to a thousand-strong audience at the Ulster Hall in Belfast. The show, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, was broadcast live on BBC Radio.

What better way to spend an hour of Christmas Eve than with this performance? Enjoy the show for free on the BBC iPlayer.

Congratulations are due to the WMT. It’s quite a thing.
