From the co-writer of Gigglemug Theatre’s award-winning Edinburgh Fringe smash hit Timpson: The Musical, Gigglemug Sounds are very excited to announce Archergeddon! as their debut comedy podcast series. Starring Mel Giedroyc, this big-hearted adventure, packed full of twists and turns, will have listeners trying to contain their giggles on their morning commute.
Welcome to the village of Bambersham where preparations for the Easter fete are in full swing! Jane Barkley (Mel Giedroyc), the newly appointed chair of Bambersham Council, needs to organise the raffle, sort the tombola… Oh, and stop the world from ending (but most importantly, organise the raffle).
In this seven-part parody series of ‘The Archers’, each episode brings with it a new plague. From a deadly virus to a horde of the undead, can the most unlikely of villages survive the apocalypse?
“The Archers meets The Apocalypse? What’s not to love?! I’m thrilled to be a part of this delightfully bonkers Gigglemug project!” – Mel Giedroyc
Archergeddon! will be free to listen to on Spotify, Apple Podcasts & other streaming services. Episodes 1 & 2 will be released on Wednesday 4th March with following episodes released weekly thereafter, finishing with Episode 7 on Wednesday 8th April.
The cast comprises Mel Giedroyc, Susan Harrison, Justin Brett, Sam Cochrane and James Stirling
