Delectably Delicious Daliances with Demons, Double-Layered Cakes, and Death!

Deftly written, excellently produced (just a few instances of blips in the production quality, but all rectified quickly), with a voice talent I could listen to all day (and just did), Achewillow offers you a whimsical romp through an equally whimsical town split down the middle not just by an international border but by a terrifying and entertaining strain of horror and layered with history, magical oddities, and characters that all make up the most delicious croissant you’ve ever had the pleasure of consuming (the lead will tell you just that, by the way). This delectable smorgasbord of tantalizing mysteries and unique twists on classic horror tropes leaves you only wanting two things: a second serving, thank you very much, and the answer to the town’s most titillating question: what the heck is an Achewillow tree? But don’t ask the town’s underrated star, Helen Edna, Notary Public. Her answer will singe your ears like a grade school teacher’s reprimand.

Wonderfully cozy, and spooky

Well written and fun story about a young girl trying to find herself, when she is put in to a very strange situation on a quirky little town on the US/Canada border. Expertly performed and produced, this show is a joy to listen to. Amy Frost and JF Dubeau combine to craft a story that is eerie, intriguing, and keeps you wanting more
