New Time invites you to experience the future of audio storytelling with a groundbreaking new podcast drama

PRESS RELEASE — April 3, 2018

New Time presents, Calais 2037, a pioneering First Person Immersive (FPI) audio drama that gives listeners the most unique and immersive storytelling experience ever created for audio.

The expansive five-part series, available to stream for free on Apple Music and all major podcasting platforms, confronts and examines the many anxieties of our age — from mass surveillance to nationalism to Europe, “Calais 2037”, is both an epic tale for our times, and an intimate and timeless human story of a young woman caught between her convictions and her conscience.

For “Calais 2037”, New Time has assembled a cast, unprecedented for podcast drama in the UK. The cast includes Tanya Fear, Jenny Agutter, Harry Lloyd, Alexander Cobb, Samuel West, Fiona Button, Angus Wright, Shane Taylor, James Fleet and William Hope.

The story in “Calais 2037” centres on Marsha Everlyn (Tanya Fear), top advisor to Joan Harrison (Jenny Agutter), the leader of His Majesty’s Official Opposition, currently living in exile with the rest of her party on the shores of Europe State. With more and more English political refugees arriving off the ferry every day, and with the arrival in Calais of Felix Harrison (Harry Lloyd), Joan Harrison’s demagogic son, both Marsha and the party at large find themselves caught between country and conscience in a high stakes game of love, loyalty, deception, and betrayal.

IMPORTANT: FIRST PERSON IMMERSIVE (FPI) AUDIO UTILISES BINAURAL TECHNOLOGY AND REQUIRES THE LISTENER TO USE A PAIR OF STEREO HEADPHONES/EARPHONES.
