Audible Editor Reviews

The Theatre Royal series compiles classic radio programs from the 1950s, and this volume showcases work by such luminaries as Oscar Wilde and Graham Greene. The quality of text is matched by the caliber of performer, as legendary actors Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud lend their golden pipes and interpretive talent to give these stories a living, breathing vividness. It is rare for there to be such a perfect marriage between a work and its performers, and this collection is a thrilling example of the golden age of radio.
