DANIEL DERONDA

by Kate McAll | Read by Edita Brychta, Barry Creyton, Ifan Meredith, Cerris Morgan-Moyer, Kimberly Nixon, Darren Richardson, Helen Sadler, Julian Sands, Andre Sogliuzzo

L.A. Theatre Works | Audio Program
Poetry & Drama

Up-and-coming British actors Kimberly Nixon and Ifan Meredith take the lead roles in what first appears to be a nineteenth-century melodrama about the meeting of a bright, ambitious young woman with limited means and an upper-crust young gentleman who saves the day.

GIRLS & BOYS

GIRLS & BOYS

by Dennis Kelly | Read by Carey Mulligan

Audible, Inc. | Unabridged
Poetry & Drama

In this fearless contemporary monologue, actor Carey Mulligan delivers a working-class London accent to tell the story of a young woman on the rise who finds an interesting job and then maybe an interesting man whom she meets offhandedly in the queue at an airport. As children, arguments, and life ensue, Mulligan finds the dark and light emotional nooks and crannies that make... Read More

THE GOODBYE GIRL

Poetry & Drama

Narrator Kathleen Godwin breathes life into this spirited, richly detailed play about actress Carole Lombard, that begins on the eve of her death in a plane crash.

She also talks to herself; for example, when she rambles,... Read More

Audible, Inc. | Audio Program
Poetry & Drama

With natural ease and absolute charm, Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe Award-winning actor John Lithgow lets the listener in on a not-so-well-kept secret: He loves the theater, and he loves a good story. In this superb one-man show he combines the two and dramatically delivers two short stories by two of his all-time favorite authors: "The Haircut," by underappreciated American... Read More
