“Sensory deprivation syndrome” carriers deprive humans of various sensory experiences, simply by touching their bare skin. When reactionary politicians learn of SDS, their attempts at containment trigger revolution among its carriers and those who love them. Christopher Lane adopts a low-key, somber tone, spicing his performance with skillful renditions of several regional and foreign accents. He shows equal mastery of Lakota, Brooklyn, and various Southern tongues in the U.S., and Russian, Dutch, and French accents abroad. The story’s slow start suggests a dull experience, but the sinister and insidious ramifications of medical prejudice in a misinformed population soon inspire listener interest. Lane’s performance never stretches the boundaries of believability. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
