The Man Who Would Be King: A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation

The Man Who Would Be King: A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation

Author: Rudyard Kipling Narrator: , Blake Ritson, Peter Polycarpou, Richard Ridings, Samuel James Release Date: 01/11/2018

Kipling's chilling adventure about two men who set out to be kings of a remote region of Afghanistan. Kipling, our narrator, tells this strange story: he was running a newspaper in a big Indian city. In the hot stillness of one night when he was putting the paper to bed, two men come into his office. They are red-bearded giant Daniel Dravot and his friend Peachy Carnehan. These two 'gentlemen at large' as they call themselves, lately of the British army, have put together an insane and dangerous plan: they want to be Kings of Kafiristan, a mountainous region of Afghanistan. Three years later, a crippled man in rags comes into Kipling's office. He is Peachy Carnehan, and he relates the chilling story of their adventure. A thrilling and haunting story about the folly and glory of imperial ambition, yet at its heart this is also a story of friendship. Cast Rudyard Kipling - Blake Ritson Daniel Dravot - Richard Ridings Peachey Carnehan - Samuel James Timuk - Peter Polycarpou Tribesmen - Joseph Ayre, Stephen Hogan, Ryan Early, Ryan Whittle Young woman/Bride - Lauren Cornelius Wounded man - John Lightbody Produced by Abigail le Fleming
