Walkabout Radio Plays

Bloomington will be transformed when you put your headphones on and step into a new world. Original radio plays will be available for download, along with maps to take you on an unforgettable journey. Listen to a new scene at each stop along the way as you experience the magic in your own backyard.

While the plays truly come alive in the environment, they have been crafted to be enjoyed anywhere, including the comfort of your own home. For those unable to walk the route, Cardinal has provided a visual companion document featuring photos of the walk.

Our first play, The Women in the Woods, is now available. If you are a 20/21 Season Member, click here to access the play via the Membership Portal. If you are not a member, get access below!

Walkabout Radio Play #1: The Women in the Woods

When Ellie accepts a mysterious university scholarship, she doesn’t realize it comes with a huge catch. Ellie discovers her roots in the town are much deeper than she knew, and she must decide if she is going to take on a responsibility she never could have imagined. Listeners will be transported to various locations on Ellie’s journey and see IU’s beautiful campus in a ghostly new light.

Recommended ages: 14+

Estimated experience time: 50 minutes, including 10-15 minutes of walking (non-walking time estimate: 40 minutes)

Additional information: There are benches at most locations on this walking route. You will be walking into Dunn’s Woods and near the creek, so bug spray is recommended. 

Accessibility: Each radio play comes with a companion document that contains photos for patrons who are unable to walk this route.
