Audible Editor Reviews

A one-of-a-kind series of classic radio dramas from English and Scottish literature, Theatre Royal has been praised for its craft and excellence. This fully-restored and remastered edition features two of Britain’s greatest actors, Ralph Richardson and John Mills. Performing with an anecdotal flair, Richardson uses his plummy-voiced charm to wonderful effect in an adaptation of A. J. Alan's good-humored story about a brush with the supernatural. In the second drama, Mills' deliberate performance stresses the psychological implications of "The Kite", based on W. Somerset Maugham’s story about a man’s obsession with kite flying.

Publisher's Summary

Fully restored and remastered, Heritage Media presents the greatest of vintage artists in classic dramas from English and Scottish Literature. Here is the legendary Ralph Richardson starring in ‘My Adventure in Norfolk’, adapted from the original tale by A. J. Alan, and John Mills starring in 'The Kite', adapted from the original tale by Somerset Maugham.

Theatre Royal is a unique series of classic radio dramas produced in the 1950s by the late Harry Alan Towers.
