Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground is an audio play that was first released in July 2020.

Two golden phonograph records containing images and audio from Earth were launched into space in 1977 in the hopes that they may one day reach extraterrestrial life. It was a message in a bottle sent off into the cosmos. In the year 4040, one of the Voyager Golden Records reaches a dying planet, and its inhabitants head out to find where it came from: Earth. What will our planet look like in 2000 years? And if all that survived of our modern civilization were a handful of songs and photos stored on a golden record, what would someone make of how we lived, and of what we considered to be most important? What will be our legacy?
