Space Junk

The vacuum of space is a cold and lonely place…

Forgotten and alone, your derelict ship drifts aimlessly in the darkness. Your only company, and last defence against the maddening silence, is the barely functioning radio receiver. Pressing your ear against the speaker, you listen closely and hope for help to drift your way…

Space Junk is a collection of sketches, stories and music brought to you by the folks behind The Quest Inn at the Centre of the Universe.

Episodes 1-4 written and performed by Tom Fahey, Indiana Kiely, Mog Thistlethwaite and Beau Windon.
