The World's Wake Pre-Show
About This Show
We are a local-community-based theatre company and recording studio, based in Viroqua, WI. Ghostbox Productions is responsible for producing "The World's Wake Pre-Show," a recurring hour-long revolutionary-sci fi-paranormal themed audio drama, released as a free podcast and soon to be broadcast on local public radio.
We bring together writers, voice actors, and musicians to create the original content of "The World's Wake Pre-Show," and also collage real-life documentary clips to tell our story.

The World's Wake Pre-Show, Episode 4: "There With the Grace of God Go I"
The host prepares us for an upcoming effort to seek an interview with The Female, who may or may not be related to the goddess of the ancient (and future) earth religion. The rites of that goddess religion are invoked by the Church of Immanent Life, and others, as they prepare their own delegation to the situation in Wheeler County, CO.
Elsewhere, the spirits prepare a play within a play, exploring the themes of expropriation and exile in the New World, and the origins of American ideals in a shipwreck on the Isle of Bermuda.
Finally, a voice from the near future tells her story of a dangerous border crossing to rescue her daughter, who is in the grip of an artificial intelligence with ulterior motives.
