Sci-fi tale that begins 500 years from now on board a dank, sprawling space station, where petty thief and protagonist Rose is caught up in the web of dodgy antique dealer Mr Jennings, who sends her back in time to present day Edinburgh.
Her mission, once back on ‘Old Earth’ (now uninhabitable after the great nuclear war of 2166) will be to retrieve a painting and bring it back to the future, where Jennings has already agreed its sale with a dangerous and powerful mafia boss.
This Audio Drama is a combination of studio, remote, and location recording techniques. The story was also adapted as a VoiceMap fictional audio walking tour in Edinburgh.
