William di Canzio's follow-up to E.M. Forster's novel MAURICE continues where the earlier story ends--with Alec Scudder and Maurice Hall embracing their uncertain future together. John Sackville's able narration brings fullness to Alec's character, centering his viewpoint as listeners discover him anew. Forthright Dorset-born gamekeeper Alec and the more urbane Maurice navigate early-twentieth-century English mores and discover queer community as their relationship unfolds. Sackville imbues this character-driven historical drama with warmth, comfort, and a sense of optimism, especially during the story's darkest moments. The men are portrayed with particular sensitivity as familial bonds and WWI threaten their relationship and their lives. This deeply satisfying production, supported with keen characterizations, expands upon and honors the spirit of Forster's original romance.
