What happens when the clock ticks past midnight? What causes the inexplicable and supernatural to become all too logical and real? What is hiding just in the corner of your eye, just out of sight? What are The Witching Hours?

Two all new radio plays by some of NZ's most exciting young writers performed for you live each Friday for just $10, The Witching Hours is an ongoing anthology of eerie audio dramas.

The first series is online as free downloads at

But what does series 2 have in store for you?

On Friday the 4th of April, you'll be treated to Fire and Eyes a scary story of swords and sorcery by Uther Dean (the A Play About trilogy, Best Solo - NZ Fringe Awards 2014) and a totalitarian tale we like to call We Can Destroy It for You Wholesale by Adam Goodall (Deadlines & Rageface).

On Friday the 11th of April, your mind will be melted by the timey-wimey madness of One Is the Only-ist Number by Uther Dean before the mystical and mythical Loki Bound by James Cain (Horatio) takes you to a whole other world.

On Thursday the 17th of April, we'll show you all the body horrors of young love in Apple of My Eye by Alice May Connolly (Vampimple & 'tut') and then explore the ghoulish world of bodysnatchers in The Resurrectionists! by Uther Dean.

On Friday the 25th of April, we'll explore what lives in the depths of our seas in Sea Creature by Hamish Parkinson (Square Eye Pair & Velcro City) and surf the weird waves of late night radio in The Graveyard Shift by Jonny Potts (3 times Best Comedy nominee - NZ Fringe Awards).

After a break for the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival, on Friday the 23rd of May, we kick back into it with Alice May Connolly's exploration of a dying world in The Big Sleepover and then we'll have ourselves an odd-little locked door mystery with IIML graduate Francesca Emms' Conception Room Killer.

On the 30th of May, courtesy of Alex Lodge (Tea for Toot and Our Parents' Children in this year's Young and Hungry) we will discover how a small town reacts to the arrival of a mysterious stranger known only as The Conductor, after that Uther Dean will treat us to the most bizarre DVD commentary of all time in Special Features Include: Murder.

The two final episodes of series 2 will be performed on Friday 6th and 13th of June. More information soon.
