Tell me, what draws you to that place? Were you raised here as child, wandering to the cliffs in your youth to throw rocks at the crumbling caves past the inlet? Did your elders tell you never to go near it, and you’ve just never shaken the childish want to disobey? Or have you passed by it in the middle of the night, and seen a dim pale light shining through the water and shining through the cracks in the rock face?

Featuring Louis-Alexandre Boulet.

I was mesmerized by the building, looking up and up at its titanic height. Near this end, it had a tower which soared to a height nearly double that of the bell tower at St. Mark’s. At the peak of the spire was a golden weather vane. Unlike St. Mark’s, the figure on that weather vane was not an angel.

Featuring Mirka Loiselle, Arun Varma, and Rachel Hart.

You know, I’ve seen the video. There was a good six months where she watched it almost every day, desperately searching for a clue, any kind of hint. All for nothing, obviously. I think we all knew that, the neighbours. But we’d sit with her while she did it, so she wouldn’t have to be alone.

Performed by Sarah Marchand, and featuring Kevin Matthew Wong and Frances Loiselle.

You see, the people who lived here choose to do so for a very specific reason. In spite of the fact that, until their being here, no humans who had ever set foot in this place wanted any part of it.

My old man turned to me, and he said, Jimmy, it’s a bad stretch of road along here. If you can avoid it, never drive it after dark. It’s a bad stretch, and bad strange things happen to folks along here after dark.

There's something Wrong with the signal.

Now I’d been in that camp fer 'bout six months, an' Jack’d been there fer 'bout four, an' it was me'n'im together what found the Frenchman, floatin’ facedown in that swamp. An' we thought for sure that he was dead. But he wasn't.

Stay tuned for announcements on our second season.

I’ve never felt at home with my wife’s family, and neither has Alison for that matter. But this time I had this special, sick feeling. There was something about this dinner, and the awful people at it, that felt like a disaster waiting to happen.

Featuring, in order of appearance, Emma Burns, Hannah Wilkinson, Alexander Saxton, and Rachel Hart.

I must say that I was surprised when I received your call. Not many people are very interested in learning the fine details of my work, given the nature of it. Yet here you are, the Brabant River Funeral Home.

I went through sort of a rough patch when I was younger, and one summer I ended up in one of those outdoor education programs so I wouldn't have to redo a year. I thought I'd be okay when they left me alone on one of those little islands. But I wasn't okay, and I wasn't alone. Featuring Eric Synnott.

Not every story has an end, or a beginning. Every day we glean half-stories, based on half-memories of half-facts. Catharsis is a rare treat for those who hear these tales, and for those who experience them.

Featuring, in order of appearance, Emma Burns, Chai Valladares, Alexander Saxton, Ilan Tzitrin, and Rachel Hart.

It had been empty for as long as anyone could remember, and even in my brightest early memories of the neighborhood I grew up in, the house at the end of the lane is stands apart with its darkened windows. Featuring Hannah Wilkinson.

Things have been pretty good since the war ended. Energy is a lot cheaper, and that drives down the price on pretty much everything else. Everything seems perfect, though there was a while when I wasn’t sleeping all too well. Let me tell you about it, about that hum.

She was walking home on one of the snowiest nights of the year, she tells me. She kind of loses track of time, and eventually comes to this park. A place she'd never heard of, and one she was never able to find again. That big park, with that little house right in the middle of it.

I used to be a sawyer, you know? Sawmill man. This weather tonight makes me think of the last place that I ever worked. The terrible cold and the awful feeling you'd get at night. Like you were being watched by something, just beyond the trees.

Featuring Chai Valladares and Eric Synnott.

I guess you wanna hear that story, huh? It all happened a short while after my father died, years ago. I never knew much about his side of the family, but maybe it was better that way. Maybe it would have been better if I'd never found those photos.
