The Cosplayas

We are planning an audio comedy drama for 2019 and we have created a small introduction to work out characters and so forth.

This has come from Ian doing a comedy writing course which gave him the confidence to start writing. One comic in the folder waiting for Nikki to draw and another in planning stages which is where this project has come from. I have the idea of The Cosplayas and want to do this drama and a comic down the line too.

Anyway have a listen to this 3 minute segment and then please feed it back to us your thoughts (good or constructive improvements please). Thank you.
