Caught out!

Yesterday I recorded the latest episode in the adventures of Helen Docherty, as she traverses the rocky road to antiquity. But instead of doing all the voices myself, I called in the help of a dear friend in Australia. Allana Noyes and I first met in 1997, in Brisbane, when we performed in a Trocadero production of “The Life and Death of King John” at Boggo Road Jail. Allana played Constance, and I was Queen Elinor. What a treat!

We’d stayed good pals over the years, and nowadays have weekly catchup calls over Zoom, since I’m in Liverpool, UK, and Allana is in Toowoomba—just outside of Brisbane, Qld, Australia.

I figured we could just as easily record our dialogue over Zoom, which saves the audio in separate files. That made it dead easy to edit, adding in sound FX etc. So that’s what we did.

The new episode is now up on Buzzsprout, you will find it here, or in your favourite podcasting software.

★★★★★ "Just what is old? You can’t help but love the lead character Helen as she tries to dodge the, “Are you alrights,” from her family and she searches for the true meaning of the word “Old”Flloyd is a master of timing and voices. Really enjoyable."

★★★★★ "Clever tales in a unique woman's voice. Flloyd’s mini-dramas are refreshing, witty and cleanly done. Acerbic yet sweet, like a fresh lemonade."

"I have just found this piece of genius. What a talented performer Flloyd is. Some versatile acting provides us with four different and equally believable characters and the piece is written with truth and pathos. Beautiful editing too, I recommend it. And Flloyd, old? Never!" Sarah Macdonald

“Absolutely wonderful, almost sounds as if it was written by a real writer.” Bill Cooke, (who is even more twisted than Flloyd).
