Bussing Out

Hopelessly Devoted

“Set in an era not too long before now, Hopelessly Devoted is an intimate audio story for one. Inspired by the time Jenny developed a hot and heavy crush on the telephone voice of her universal credit consultant, Hopelessly Devoted is a quest to find connection against a backdrop of suspicion, seclusion and a pervasive culture of rape.

Hopelessly Devoted is an intimate audio journey in 3 parts.

Remote audiences can access the audio via: hopelessly-devoted.com (password MINX)”
