In what was once New York, life is a tenuous and desperate thing, and the arrival of a military force that offers safety at the expense of freedom is welcomed with open arms. Yet this regime is only the beginning of the troubles in this region. Out of the west, a man comes announcing a great holy war that is to come, and from within the ranks of the military regime comes a man who will stop at nothing to take control of their weapons to sacrifice to his dark God.
This lush "mind movie" features over 30 actors, was recorded on locations throughout southern Maine, and features an original score and the production talents of award-winning producer Fred Greenhalgh. Called "epic" by BBC Radio 4 Producer John Dryden, this audio theater production is sure to thrill.
Frederick Greenhalgh has been writing stories since childhood and working in radio drama since 2006. Trained as an indie filmmaker, he has brought a film-like approach to his radio stories. His passion is in telling genre stories with a slant and reenvisioning how the audio format can entertain and illuminate in the 21st century. Fred lives with his wife and daughter in rural Maine.
Additional narrators include Reggie Hodges, Cole Amorello, Andrew Sawyer, Susan Reilly, Daniel Noel, Dave Marshall, Burke Brimmer, Richard "Mac", James Herrera, Ian Carlsen, Gary Dixon, Pope Brock, PG Lorusso, Nat Angstrom, Nate Speckman, Johnny Speckman, Adam Araujo, William Dufris, Gary Hauger, and Janice Gardner.

Confusing and un-inventive
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I was hoping for something akin to the old time radio stories but this one is... well, just weird. I can't figure out what timeline I'm on within the story and the "sound effects" are generally not helpful and sometimes get in the way of hearing what is going on.
I like the idea of audibly performed stories but they need to be a MUCH better quailty than this one gave. Sorry guys, but you need to return to the drawing board.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Cleansed of anything new and INTERESTING!! Boring story, and settings......and sound effects........
Would you ever listen to anything by Frederick Greenhalgh again?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Cleansed?
Too many to list!
