The Theater Accident Podcast presents cast albums and archival recordings of Theater Accident’s Brooklyn-based fringe theater productions.
"Matthew Freeman’s The Listeners boasts a swinging, Aleister Crowley naughtiness. It’s a Lynchian fable set in a bed-and-breakfast where time has a habit of looping back on itself. Imagine The Wicker Man sprinkled with Pinter: dark and silly, silly and dark." - Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
The Listeners is a surreal drama about memory and ritual. A family that runs an ad-hoc bed and breakfast. Two drifters arrive at their doorstep. The Listeners was originally produced in 2015 at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn, New York under the direction of Michael Gardner. It was developed by Matthew Freeman, Michael Gardner, and the cast, and is written by Matthew Freeman.In this new recording, the original cast reprises their roles: Moira Stone as Sistine, Jay Leibowitz as Colm, Robert Honeywell as Elliot, Sarah K. Lippmann as Marion, Stephanie Willing as Careen, and Heather E. Cunningham as Augusta. Sound design, editing and co-production by Jay Leibowitz.

I remember this. I remember all of this.
I remember this. I remember all of this. I was in this. I said all the words that were written down for me to say. We recorded this on Zoom in April 25, 2020. We recorded it after weeks of texting each other lines from the play. We texted the lines from the play because they suddenly made sense to us. Months went by after we recorded this. And then I made this from what we recorded. Thank you for listening to this.
Perfect nighttime headphones theater of the air
I got to see this onstage, and I thought it really worked as an all audio format. At a time when so much Theater is on Zoom with not great sound, having a play produced as audio this way really works. Atmospheric, funny, and a little sinister. A great night listen with your earbuds or headphones.
