Evcol Entertainment was established in 2008, as an off-shoot from The Okai Collier Company Limited [formed in 1994], and at that time primarily focused on theatrical productions, predominantly in the horror genre. In 2017 the company moved it's focus to Audio Dramas, and in December of that year recorded it's first production; The Raven.
Next came Beyond the Time Machine, an original sequel to the book by H. G. Wells, which continues the time traveler's story when he is confronted with an ultimatum regarding the ethics of his time-travelling activities.
Stepping aside slightly from horror, Sci-Fi and melodrama, the company then went on to record it's first musical production; Spooky Noises, which was based on a series of successful children's books. Richard Bates added music and lyrics to the piece and the production was recorded in London, in June 2018.
As the company was preparing its next studio piece, Bates and Collier turned to work-shopping another musical project; The Countess. Based on a story written in 1988 and subsequently published as 'Countess & Cabbages' in 1998, the story features a tyrannical Countess who has made the population of Zumbug Munchyville work down her deep, dark cabbage mine. Their only hope comes in the guise of 11-year-old Barry Braithwaite and a giant worm called 'Frankie'!
2020 will see the company developing and producing a number of productions including; Skin II: The Session and Skin III: The Final Incision. Skin II: It’s been four years since vegan serial killer Vivian Shorewood skinned the first of her sixteen victims in what she deemed a ‘boutique-culling’ of London's more undesirable inhabitants. Frustrated that her five previous psychiatrists haven’t truly been able to embrace or understand, and in some cases even believe her actions, she decided to make an appointment to see Dr. Martin Boyden, a respected expert in his field. ‘Skin II: The Session’ is their first meeting, which happened last Thursday at 11.45 am. The drama will see Samantha Boffin returning to reprise her role of 'Vivian', with Mitch Howell joining as 'Dr. Martin Boyden' and Georgie Montgomery as 'Rebecca'.
Completing the trilogy; Skin III: The Final Incision. It’s been nine years since vegan serial killer Vivian Shorewood skinned the first of her twenty-eight victims. She receives a call from Oakleaf Nursing Home, in Wollaton, Nottingham, where her mother, 84-year-old Hilary, has taken a turn for the worse. Hilary’s Care Worker intimates to Vivian that maybe she should pay her mother a visit, sooner rather than later. What Vivian doesn’t know is that Hilary has both something to tell her daughter, something she has kept a secret her entire life, and to ask of her one last request.
