Set in the late 1700s, MORGAN'S RUN tells of the settlement of New South Wales, Australia, by British soldiers and convicts. Richard Morgan, unjustly convicted of extortion, is sentenced to transport and seven years of service. Along with hundreds of others, he eventually ends up in the "new experiment" of Australia, where he thrives. Curry's smooth, cynical, and sarcastic intonations convey the pain, uncertainty, and other emotions of the characters. McCullough brings a vivid picture of how eighteenth-century British society felt about her citizens and the lands she colonized. Tim Curry's performance brings home the cruelty of transport and arms-length rule that was part of Britain's policy. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
