  • Winner of the New York Festivals Radio Award 2020 for Best Drama Special (Gold)

Following the death of her parents, Rachel Fell invests her inheritance in Castringham Hall, a derelict Tudor house in East Suffolk. A house beside an ancient, dying Ash Tree…

A new audio adaptation by Matthew Holness (Possum, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) of the classic M.R. James story, starring Amanda Abbington (Sherlock), Reece Shearsmith (Inside No 9) and John Sessions (Stella Street)

“Matt Holness has crafted a spirited and thoroughly modern adaptation of one of James’ more elaborate stories…” STARBURST MAGAZINE

“The tension levels build gently, with plenty of gruesome twists and turns on the way to a horrific conclusion… The Ash Tree is a smart updating of this classic tale.” INDIE MAC USER

“James’s stories exist in the shadows, in the wintry horror of branches rattling the windows. This unsettling adaptation captures it perfectly.” SFX MAGAZINE
