A true story of soul searching, wise cracking and ghost hunting
Join playwright and raconteur Phil Spencer (Story Club ABC 2, Radiotonic) and squeeze box troubadour Elana Stone (All Our Exes Live In Texas, Rockwiz) for a comedic journey through life, death and the afterlife via Sydney’s own Alcatraz.
HOOTING & HOWLING is a tale of one man’s induction into the realm of the supernatural and his desperate efforts to resist being an atheist ‘know it all’ as a group of eccentric hobbyists attempt to make contact with the unknown, armed with only torches and a packet of ginger snap biscuits.
Weaving a heartfelt and fright filled tale with a handful of new songs by the utterly magical Elana Stone, HOOTING & HOWLING is simple story telling at its very best.
✮✮✮✮Spencer’s charm and winning on-stage charisma is simply delightful The Brag
Phil Spencer is the Dave Allen of modern storytelling ABC 702
