Goddess: An Audio Drama
By Mark Harris
Epic Theatre Ensemble presents Goddess, an 8-part audio fantasy about the Goddess of Clear Sight, Zarqa. Zarqa was a Mesopotamian prophetess whose visions saved her people from certain doom. But when she told truths they did not like, they turned on her and crucified her as a witch. When our series opens, Zarqa stands before Osiris, judge of the dead. Isis is so impressed with Zarqa’s bravery and character, she intervenes and promotes Zarqa to an immortal Goddess. With her pet demon, Behemoth, Zarqa travels history, helping people see both themselves and others clearly. All along, she is pursued by the malevolent “crawling chaos,” Narlathotep. Where she goes, clearing people’s visions, he follows, clouding them again.
