Draw your chair to the fireside as the story of Evyn unfolds in Ron Keith's magnificent English accent. History is revealed through the story of Evyn, an adolescent Welsh serf whose dream of becoming a storyteller is dashed when his tongue is severed by his father's murderer. As Harold Godwinson ascends to the throne of England, the damaged Evyn comes to be his trusted friend, his foster son, his greatest champion. Each character speaks in a distinctly rendered and carefully accented voice. From the musical lilt of Evyn's words and subsequent thoughts to the lordly intonations of King Harold, Keith brings to life the gripping story of tragedy, war and death in the years from 1063 to 1066 for audiences aged 11 to 100.
