Frank Holden created a one-act play in 1989 about Judge Prowse, a larger-than-life Newfoundland character from the late 1800s. Holden now adapts and performs that play in a lovely audio production that is both humorous and respectful. The Judge decides local cases with common sense while intermittently regaling his court with alternately ribald and tragic stories. He is also famous for having written A HISTORY OF NEWFOUNDLAND and self-publishing it in 1895. Those dissatisfied with it could give him the unused part of the book back, and he'd give the unused part of the money back. Holden's strong and appealing Canadian accent booms and blusters, matching the archived photograph of the long-bearded fellow on the front cover.
