GREED is actually three stories, with the title story the shortest. All are read verbatim by R.F. Daley while other actors provide the dialogue. The effect generally works well, and most of the numerous actors give honest performances, with only slight stereotyping of the villainous characters. "The Automagic Horse," the third and longest story, gives its actors more time to shine in their portrayal of 1920s Hollywood. Proto-feminists and faux-gangsters emote with gusto, and Daley remains steady in his narration, easily reining in Hubbard's somewhat dated prose. Professional sound effects and music are used effectively throughout the production, enhancing the period feel. A.Z.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
