The Girl of Ink and Stars - Audio Drama

A play by Satinder Chohan

A tale of maps, myth and monsters

Forbidden to leave her island, Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her father once mapped. When a girl from the village disappears into the island's Forgotten Territories, Isabella and her lifelong friend Pablo go in search of her.

Following her map and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers that deep beneath the dry rivers and smoky mountains, a fiery legend is stirring from its sleep...

A gripping audio drama performed over three podcasts, The Girl of Ink and Stars is a story of myth, magic and the power of friendship.

For children aged 7+ and their families

... a thrilling and atmospheric audio experience based on an imaginative tale... a welcome escape to another world.
