    Well written and cleverly referenced; keeps the listener engaged to the end

    Very interesting and the first time listening to an audio play. Whilst initially not engaging with Harriet, I became intrigued as the play went on. Well worth a listen to the very end.

    This was my first audio play experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the listening. I found the ongoing anticipation in the story line and the final twist most enthralling. I’m planning to listen to The Devil’s often in the Detail next. I’m looking forward to it and very much hope that Mr Lipscombe continues to provide such enjoyable plays. Thank you.

    Very interesting. I’m torn between appreciating your preamble narration that this will be a dream sequence, and regretting that Rita’s last statements didn’t spring a surprise on me. One demerit: Rita’s voice seems to have been recorded elsewhere with a different mic and then spliced into Harriet’s lines. If there was a conscious intent in making it sound like a patchwork, I’ve totally missed it. I love Rita’s Scottish accent! Harriet was played very well! I wish they had both been at the same mic at the same time.

      The revised recording is something to look forward to. Thanks for the Heads Up!

      Is “Harriet’s Butterflies” a free-standing vignette or an episode from a larger work? If the latter, then I would hope that more episodes will be recorded.

      I was directed to this Barford offering by my good and great friend, Michele Fry whom I first met back in the late 60s, lost track of for 45 years, and then found again in February of 2016. Since that time we’ve begun making up for lost time, sharing stories and commentary on a daily basis. Our families live only a thousand miles apart, which in this internet era is nothing.

      Thank you for producing this interesting audio offering.

    I finally finished listening to all 3 parts of this play.. What an unusual ending! Keith is a talented and thoughtful writer and I encourage him to continue..
