"Death's not so bad... once you get to know her."

And we're hitting the ground running - Someone New has a new production in the works: the original play, Death and I, by our own Ryan O'Connor. A radio play production produced in collaboration with City of Greater Geelong and Greater Geelong Creative Inc. 

We're slowly transitioning back to in-person productions: from the podcast production of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this production will be video rehearsals and a full-day recording session at a Geelong studio in early November. 


We have had a great many wonderful auditions, and found our new cast. It's a privilege to bring this original story to life with such a team - we're busy putting our heads down to make this production into a killer! 


Our Cast and Crew - Death and I

Death and I is the story of how a young woman falls in love with the Grim Reaper. After all, who wouldn't want a partner with a steady job, an even temperament, and a killer wardrobe? 

When Peter and Louise died in a car accident on a rainy night, they make a deal with Death: that the Grim Reaper watches over their two children, and makes sure that they grow up to be happy. 

Which is a fine decision, really. In theory. 

But no one can account for affairs of the heart, particularly when one party in question doesn't have a heart. And when Laura begins to wonder about the dark figure that occasionally turns up to give her life advice, it begins a chain of events that might be better off having never begun. 

After all, Death waits for no one. 


Working together with the City of Greater Geelong and the Greater Geelong Creative Inc., Someone New is proud to present this tale of love and death. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates, behind-the-scenes looks, and even sneak previews of the final product!
