 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.
