Time is running out for Detective Charlie SMOG. As he falls from the Swallow Hotel in Stockton High Street he considers love, life and whether he left £4.50 out for the window cleaner. Meanwhile, down below in Teesside 2049 a supernatural fog has descended and things are getting weird. Even weirder than usual… 

Twin Peaks meets The League of Gentlemen inTales from The SMOG, an absurd, sci-fi comedy-noir with live animation and spooky stories. And a multi-dimensional alien invasion that will make your eyes water and your nose bleed.
