And just like any other town, Mayfair has a secret - one that everyone knows, but almost no one says: Along the bus routes and down silent wooded roads, behind the mill and at the dark end of parking lots, at the edge of the porch, just beyond the lamp light, things move in the shadows. But, Mayfair is a town like any other: and a secret like this can only stay hidden for so long.

ChemicallyWrit ,

In a fiction landscape of shocking twists…

…This show rejects the need for cheap thrills and tells you right from the beginning: there will be an elevator, and someone will die. The joy is in the journey, and in the flawless writing and sound design. I love this show.

Creative and Diverse

I love that every episode is an entirely new world, with a novel plot, talented voices, and funny (or tragic) stories that stick to the brain. I can’t wait for the next season!

Doing this To Get Function ,

Best Title in Audio Drama

It’s a show about people dying in elevators, all in uniquely odd, scary, or sometimes poignant ways. An incredible collaborative effort from some of the best creators in audio drama - you really should go listen.
