 Created by Donna Barrow-Green, The Diarist is  a chilling thriller set in the stylized world of 1950s New York City. Hailed as "if Hitchock had written a love story" (Geek Girl Authority) and "runner up for dark workplace drama" (Radio Public).  The Diarist is the story of a naive and attentive  secretary, Andrea Davies. When Andrea submits to a lurid affair with her boss -the charismatic psychopath Richard Hayes- she enters a web of sadism and deception. Richard fits the bill for the "perfect" 1950s man, but Andrea's hubris and curiosity soon leads her to his twisted, intimate marriage to wife Margaret. Margaret is a ghostly, shut-in "psychotic" with secrets that can destroy Richard's plans for Andrea and jeopardize Andrea's  dream of Happily Ever After." At times riveting, light, funny, and terrifying, The Diarist is an addictive, bingeable bizarre love story.

This episode contains mild sexual content/ violence. Discretion is advised.

How long does it take for a facade to shatter? Our poor protagonist has found herself on an island--inhabited by the ghosts of her past and present. There's Richard but remember he is a gentleman on one side and a devil on the other. 

Andrea:...

They are finally together! Richard and Andrea take us to Hawaii in this romantic episode of The Diarist. It's magical and of course perfect. And the ghost of Margaret Hayes? Why she can barely haunt them at all. No. This indeed, is the happiest time of Andrea's life.
