Our Editor's Take

In The Mockery Manor podcast, two genres-suspense and comedy-cleverly overlap. A spooky and captivating story, this podcast is a fictional audio drama. The plot focuses on a group of teenagers at the center of a series of strange happenings.

The podcast takes place in the titular theme park in 1980s England. JJ, the main character, gets a summer job at the rundown park with her twin sister Bette. Along with the intricacies of teenage drama, JJ discovers that not all is as it seems at Mockery Manor. After a series of deaths comes to light, one secret gives way to another at the park. It's up to the unlikely heroes to find out what lies behind the enigmatic theme park.

Scriptwriter Lindsay Sharman's comedic genius is obvious in every episode. The UK-based writer began her career in comedy before producing several award-winning stage shows. In 2020, she took her talents to the format of audio fiction and released this acclaimed podcast.

The character development of everyone in the story brings so much life to Mockery Manor. As the story develops, the characters grow and mature. Rather than cheap thrills, the audio mystery delivers plenty of depth and intrigue. This show will keep listeners guessing about what may happen next. As the frights unfold, Sharman's signature comedic style keeps the show from being too heavy.

The podcast is complete with a score that sets the mood along with amazing voice acting. Add seamless sound design, and the result is an immersive and thrilling show. Fans of Mockery Manor enjoy the combination of black humor and a spellbinding mystery. This production may appeal to lovers of a story full of the unexpected. New episodes come out each month.

Support Lindsay and Laurence on Ko-fi! Our sincere thanks to you <3 Read the Transcripts Previously on Mockery Manor: Bette sent each of the suspects a letter and brought them all to the parlour of the Four Spurs Saloon for a Poirot-style showdown. Sure enough, the currently-comatose Bobby is revealed as the man behind Clayton's many illegitimate kids. Twenty-some years ago, Bobby sold Clay's sperm without the country star's knowledge. What an asshole! One of those kids is revealed to be Clay's assistant, Anna Lou! Not only that, but Anna Lou's mother turns out to be Clay's stalker Abilene, the woman who invaded the VIP lounge on the night of the murder. That's right, folks, Abilene had bought some of Clay's purloined sperm to create her kids! Now, with those kids all grown up, Bette reveals that Abilene had recently been receiving love letters from someone purporting to be Clayton. Golly gosh! As for Jacob - formerly Harry - he claims to have come to the park with the sole purpose of getting his revenge on Bobby for running him out of town all those years ago... but Jacob done changed his mind and let bygones be bygones. And just as Bette was about to reveal who really poisoned Bobby, JJ burst through the doors and confessed! ------- Written by Lindsay Sharman Directed by Lindsay Sharman and Laurence Owen Music, sound design and editing by Laurence Owen featuring Hayley Evenett as Bette and JJ, Laurence Owen as Parker and additional voices, John Henry Falle as Fenwick, Christina Bianco as Kirsteen, Karim Kronfli as George, Luke Capasso as Jacob, Kristi Boulton as Anna Lou and Abilene, James Ducker as Walter, and Madame Magenta as herself.
