    You Never Can Tell was originally born out of a bet that Shaw couldn’t write a “seaside comedy” (a popular theatrical genre at that time). The result is perhaps the most surprising of Shaw’s plays, complete with marital mayhem, tangled romance, and even doubtful dentistry. Despite the play’s lighthearted tone, it’s really another of Shaw’s brilliantly observed social treatises, this time in the guise of a light comedy. An LA Theatre Works full-cast recording featuring James Callis, Siobhan Hewlett, Nicholas Hormann, Martin Jarvis, Christopher Neame, Moira Quirk, Susan Sullivan, Simon Templeman and Matthew Wolf, directed by Rosalind Ayres, and recorded before a live audience

    “The Kraken’s Lament” by Mark Wright “Gather round, wretched peoples of Atlantis, for Acanthus the talesmith has a story to tell! A story of adventure, of courage, of a winged goddess searching for truth and sanctuary in a friendless city…” On the streets of this fair city, the goddess searches for a path to the child of two worlds, but finds instead only questions and danger. Be astonished as she defies the rage of the dreaded kraken! Wonder as she sups with the tragic queen in her carved stone palace, high above the city! Marvel at her bravery as she gazes deep into the further beyond! Come one, come all and listen! Listen to Acanthus the talesmith and let him amaze you with his story … the story of Professor Bernice Summerfield and the Kraken’s Lament!” “The Temple of Questions” by Jacqueline Rayner Life can be dangerous when a god’s got it in for you. Bernice and her historian allies, Ruth and Leonidas, are trying to unearth the truth behind the mysterious world they’re living in. Poseidon, god of the seas, is apparently offering them answers—but only if they play his games. And he’s not playing fair. Bernice’s new family is in danger of being ripped apart by forces that are beyond their understanding. To keep her friends, she might have to lose the games … and her life with them. “Private Enemy No. 1” by Tony Lee The Great Leader is dead … Long live the Great Leader! Atlantis is in disarray. The historians are hiding Bernice, Leonidas, and Ruth within their safe house—but the world is changing more than they could have ever imagined. People are being erased from existence, their memories wiped clean and replaced with those of others. Entire buildings are altering, times are changing … and the hierophants are on the move. Can Bernice and her friends save Atlantis from the end of existence? Or will they too be assimilated? “Judgement Day” by Scott Handcock Atlantis has fallen. The Epoch are in command. And terrible decisions lie in wait for Bernice Summerfield. Bernice and her comrades will be put to the ultimate test—facing neanderthals on prehistoric Earth; alien creatures on the streets of Victorian London; and the Epoch in the far, far future—but which world will they choose to make their home? Their journeys have been long and arduous. But soon, they will all end. Because Bernice Summerfield dies today … and when she does, reality will fall apart around her.

    “Brand Management” by Christopher Cooper, directed by Gary Russell, and featuring Liam Cooper, Roger Hammond, Paul Jones, Anjli Mohindra, and Robbie Webster “You’re listening to Live Audio Stream G371, the only official source of government-approved easy listening entertainment, as sponsored by the Dominicci Corporation. It’s the thirteenth day of the thirteenth month, and that means just one thing, people—it’s time to partayyyy…!” Bernice Summerfield needs a job. Professor Harry Burtenshaw thinks she’s just the ticket. But with the people of Lyndyaz celebrating their most important festival, and the ruling Dominicci Corporation maintaining control with draconian glee, has Bernice turned up in the wrong place at the wrong time? “Bad Habits” by Simon Barnard & Paul Morris, directed by Gary Russell, and featuring Marcus Harris, Paul Jones, Jacqueline King, Nigel Lambert, Charlie Langdell, and Ian H. Watkins Meet Sister Bernice— newest initiate into the order of Saint Celestion. Such is her devotion to the faith that she has undertaken a pilgrimage to the planet Agora, birthplace of the blessed Saint himself. The pilgrims aren’t alone, however. Also on the planet is a team of archaeologists searching for the lost tomb of Celestion—a subject in which Sister Bernice seems curiously interested. In her quest to unearth an ancient relic that will point the way to Legion, Bernice will face some fearsome challenges: the dreaded Blood Beast of Thaloon, the randiest Bishop in the galaxy, and an ancient cult with some very bad habits indeed. “Paradise Frost” by David Llewellyn, directed by Scott Handcock, and featuring Scott Arthur, Arthur Darvill, India Fisher, and Alan Ruscoe Kaff Zarnak was once the holiday destination of choice for the rich and famous. At least, it was until the planet spun off its axis, and a deadly virus wiped out its population. Now it’s absolutely the last place anyone wants to visit: a barren, ice-encrusted wasteland, sitting among the stars. So when Bernice and her loud-mouthed cab driver Ray are drawn off course, it’s fair to say that they’ve both had better days. Taking refuge inside the Xanadu Tower resort, the trio encounter Kaff Zarnak’s only survivors… and maybe the only remaining clue to what took place there. But food supplies are low, Sandroaches are attacking on every side, and the only hope of their survival seems to be locked at the top of the tower. Perhaps there’s a reason what happens on Kaff Zarnak stays on Kaff Zarnak.

    The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world’s largest Shakespeare collection, brings Julius Caesar to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition. Shakespeare may have written Julius Caesar as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe, in 1599. For it, he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar’s death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare’s play keeps this debate alive.  This new full-cast recording—based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare’s classic—expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

This new full-cast recording—based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare’s classic—expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989), one of the greatest avant-garde Irish dramatists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1969. His centenary was celebrated throughout 2006 with performances of his major plays, but the most popular of them all was, without doubt, the play with which he first made his name: Waiting for Godot. It opened the gates to the theater of the absurd as four men appear on stage, apparently with purpose but (perhaps) waiting for someone called Godot. Stark, funny, and bemusing, Waiting for Godot is still deeply affecting half a century since its first production. In this new audiobook recording, John Tydeman takes a fresh look at one of the milestones in Western drama. It also follows the highly acclaimed recordings of Beckett’s trilogy—Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable.

    Hedda Gabler, the daughter of a deceased general, marries dull George Tesman and foresees a life of middle class tedium stretching into eternity. She finds herself increasingly drawn into the clutches of her admirer, Judge Brack, who seeks to establish a ménage à trois. Then a former flame arrives in the brilliant but dissolute Eilert Lovborg to rival her husband for an academic post. After a drunken orgy, the manuscript of Lovborg’s treatise falls into her hands—where it is promptly destroyed. Discovery traps her, her romantic ideas are shattered, and there seems to be only one way out of the net—the pistols of her father, the general.

His look at life in a village pub, The Weir, was premiered in Dublin and then ran for over a year in the West End and on Broadway. Port Authority is his followup to the well-known classic and features three Dublin men of differing ages simply telling their stories to the audience. Although regarded as a spare document, the wit, insight, and pathos are skillfully woven by this major dramatist to make it an unforgettable major recording premier. Contains adult subject matter and explicit language

    Bad plays are hissed; good plays are cheered. There are few occasions when a play is so controversial as to unleash violent passions and cause a serious riot at its premier. The Playboy of the Western World was just such a play. One of the best-known Irish playwrights, John Millington Synge, premiered The Playboy of the Western World in 1907 at Dublin’s Abbey Theatre. This morbid comedy deals with the moment of glory of a peasant boy who becomes a hero in a strange village when he boasts of having just killed his father—but who loses the villagers’ respect when his father turns up alive. The play’s unsentimental treatment of Irishmen provoked controversy, eventually resulting in the infamous “Playboy riots.” The Playboy of the Western World has been recorded and adapted many times, but this timeless recording stars the Irish actors who made it a classic, including Siobhan McKenna and Cyril Cusack.
