Lennie Gray (An Audio Drama Podcast)

Lennie Gray is a biweekly audio drama podcast set in the American South during the early part of the 20th Century. Lennie Gray yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her within. She has known from an early age that she is meant to live a better life, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women. Lennie Gray is set in motion when she attempts to escape from marriage to a loathsome man. Under the cloak of nightfall, Lennie rushes towards nearby train tracks to begin her walk north towards a better future. Before long, she is caught by Curly, the father of her unborn child, who gives her an ultimatum.Contact via e:mail:Lenniegraypodcast@gmail.com
