Casting Call for The Ravenskil Chronicles

It’s a Trap! are currently looking for actors to join us on our latest Podcast Drama project.  We will shortly be recording The Ravenskil Chronicles, an eight episode original drama series set in the 1920s following occult investigators Alistair Higgins and Sam Preston as they travel England in fighting hidden, long forgotten foes.

The Ravenskil Chronicles will be released as eight half hour episodes on the internet.

We are looking for volunteers to come on board for specific roles and/or to join our Company of Players providing voices to a myriad of extras.

In particular we are looking for actors to portray:

Alistair Higgins –  a world weary Occult Investigator, an ex WWI army officer in his late 20s.

Samuel Preston – a sergeant in WWI, east end of London ex-con turned good

Rupert Higgins – the patriarch of the Higgins Family

If you are interested in helping us please email

Auditions and rehearsals for late June / early July.  The rehearsals and recording will be taking place in the fine city of Norwich.


Please note we will be unable to pay or provide expenses for participating in this project, and we expect the recording to last over the course of a few weeks.  We all have to work so we’re going to have to be flexible in the recording process.
