A Way Out

 image

A mini-series adventure into the unknown depths of the earth and mind, A Way Out is a four-part narrative podcast exploring what happens when an unauthorized cave venture goes wrong, leaving the only qualified person unconscious. Scripted by three Writing majors (Megan Adachi, Brianna Bock and Megan Hands) plus one Theatre student (Justin Francis Lee), A Way Out was created via The Canadian Play Thing’s “Apartment of Writing”, a collective of emerging playwrights that uses the writer’s room model from TV to create stories.
