The earliest-produced play in this collection, "Epiphanies", was created with the assistance of a Canada Council Grant in 1980, and was originally intended as the pilot for a series.
In 1985 an association with CHEZ 106 FM in Ottawa led to the creation of the remainder of the plays, the last of which was produced in 1990.
Primary production was done using Neuman and AKG microphones through a Studer board to an Ampex 8-track tape deck and mastered to Ampex 1-inch half-track tape.
"Xmas Is Coming To The District of Drudge" and "Plague" won Ottawa ACTRA Awards for Best Radio Program of the year in 1988 and '89 respectively. A set of the plays as broadcast on America's National Public Radio Network received a silver medal in the drama category at the 1990 New York International Radio Festival. In 1993 the play "Spaxter" received a MARK TIME Award from the American Society for Science Fiction Audio and was inducted into their Hall of Fame (alongside such legendary works as "The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" and the Orson Welles production of "The War of the Worlds").
Plays from the series have been heard on Canada's CBC, Britain's LBC and Australia's ABC networks.
