A sad, strange fairytale about a young girl who wakes up to find that the world has ended.
Mirabel is adapted from the 2018 storytelling show co-produced by Chris Goode & Company and Ovalhouse (now Brixton House). Reimagined for audio by Chris Goode, the creator of the award winning Men In the Cities, this limited series also features the Offie-nominated sound design of Matt Padden.
Mirabel will be released in daily episodes, Monday 22 – Friday 26 June.
“… beautifully narrated and performed by Goode … full of verbal musicality and playfulness and lovingly recited.” Theatre News
“Goode provides a delicious dissection... Poetic in form and lyrical in delivery, he has a gorgeous grasp for words…” Broadway World
“Mirabel is criss-crossed with reflections on adult- and childhood, reality and myth, and unfurling mental states. Its cleverness and sorrow is like the screaming-crunch of leaves underfoot after you laughed in delight at them being kicked high in the autumn air” Exeunt
“The language is evocative, delivered lightly and matter-of-factly, with instances of beautiful evocative imagery, quirky abstractions, and moments that are straight-up horrifying and macabre” Theatre Box
“With almost decadent deadpan humour Goode explores loss, survival, death and never-ending hope” Verity Healey
“The writing is always starkly beautiful, often playful and it finds the absurdity in the terror” Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor
“In the middle of all the uncanny is Chris Goode, a marvellous presence, an even more marvellous voice, and surely our generation’s Virgil into and out of our very particular Inferno” Dan Rebellato
