A Trespasser's Guide to the Classics: The Complete Series 1 and 2

A Trespasser's Guide to the Classics: The Complete Series 1 and 2

Comedy troupe Peepolykus star in their own BBC Radio 4 sketch show, creating eight riotous reboots of literary classics 'In comedy terms, what Peepolykus can do is limitless ' Variety Peepolykus (pronounced 'people-like-us') have toured their irreverent brand of comic theatre in over 100 towns across four continents. Now they've taken to the airwaves, hijacking the great works of fiction to hilarious effect. Assuming the roles of minor characters in major works, they derail the plots through their own hapless buffoonery, and from Madame Bovary to Macbeth, familiar stories take an unexpected turn. Two painter/decorators do irreparable damage to the portrait of a certain Mr Gray. An early plastic surgeon has her work cut out when she meets a Frenchman with the most wonderfully large nose. A pair of sailors, hiding out on a deserted island, are discovered by a long-forgotten castaway and his Spanish manservant. And a Whitby magician, preparing to compete with Harry Houdini, notices strange bite marks on the neck of a woman he has just met... Anarchic, ridiculous and uproariously funny, A Trespasser's Guide to the Classics is written and performed by John Nicholson, Richard Katz and Javier Marzan. Production credits Written and performed by John Nicholson, Richard Katz and Javier Marzan Directed by Sasha Yevtushenko (The Nose directed by Emma Harding and produced by Sasha Yevtushenko) Peepolykus is produced by Eleanor Lloyd Productions Episode Titles: Series 1 1 - Mr Gray's Decorators 2 - The Rat-Catchers of Yonville 3 - A Fistful of Sand 4 - Tell Me a Story Series 2 1 - The Neck 2 - The Nose 3 - The Prophecy 4 - The Auction

Les Misérables: Penguin Classics

Les Misérables: Penguin Classics

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by an ensemble cast which includes the BAFTA award-winning actor Adeel Akhtar (Killing Eve; The Night Manager; Les Miserables), Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey; The King's Speech), Natalie Simpson (Outlander; Les Miserables), Emma Fielding (Unforgotten; Les Miserables) and John Owen-Jones, who was the youngest actor ever to play the part of Jean Valjean in the stage show of Les Miserables, and who has appeared as Jean Valjean on Broadway and in the West End. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Robert Tombs. Victor Hugo's tale of injustice, heroism and love follows the fortunes of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict determined to put his criminal past behind him. But his attempts to become a respected member of the community are constantly put under threat: by his own conscience, and by the relentless investigations of the dogged policeman Javert. It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine, driven to prostitution by poverty. (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Longbourn

Longbourn

Author: Jo Baker Narrator: Emma Fielding Release Date: 01/10/2013

• Pride and Prejudice was only half the story • If Elizabeth Bennet had the washing of her own petticoats, Sarah often thought, she’d most likely be a sight more careful with them. In this irresistibly imagined belowstairs answer to Pride and Prejudice, the servants take center stage. Sarah, the orphaned housemaid, spends her days scrubbing the laundry, polishing the floors, and emptying the chamber pots for the Bennet household. But there is just as much romance, heartbreak, and intrigue downstairs at Longbourn as there is upstairs. When a mysterious new footman arrives, the orderly realm of the servants’ hall threatens to be completely, perhaps irrevocably, upended. Jo Baker dares to take us beyond the drawing rooms of Jane Austen’s classic—into the often overlooked domain of the stern housekeeper and the starry-eyed kitchen maid, into the gritty daily particulars faced by the lower classes in Regency England during the Napoleonic Wars—and, in doing so, creates a vivid, fascinating, fully realized world that is wholly her own.
