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

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

The Ultimate Allan Quatermain Collection: 8 Novels, 4 Short Stories & 1 Extracanonical Work Audiobook

The Ultimate Allan Quatermain Collection: 8 Novels, 4 Short Stories & 1 Extracanonical Work

The Ultimate Allan Quatermain Collection includes the 8 full-length novels, 4 short stories and 1 extracanonical work featuring Allan Quatermain. The character Allan Quatermain is an English-born professional big game hunter and occasional trader living in South Africa. An outdoorsman who finds English cities and climate unbearable, he prefers to spend most of his life in Africa, where he grew up under the care of his widower father, a Christian missionary. In the earliest-written novels, native Africans refer to Quatermain as Macumazahn, meaning Watcher-by-Night, a reference to his nocturnal habits and keen instincts. In later-written novels, Macumazahn is said to be a short form of Macumazana, meaning One who stands out. Quatermain is frequently accompanied by his native servant, the Hottentot Hans, a wise and caring family retainer from his youth. His sarcastic comments offer a sharp critique of European conventions. In his final adventures, Quatermain is joined by two British companions, Sir Henry Curtis and Captain John Good of the Royal Navy, and by his African friend Umslopogaas. Included in this collection: 1. King Solomon's Mines (1885) 2. Allan Quatermain (1887) 3. Allan's Wife and Other Tales (1887): Allan's Wife / Hunter Quatermain's Story / A Tale of Three Lions / Long Odds 4. Marie (1912) 5. Child of Storm (1913) 6. Allan and the Holy Flower (1915) 7. The Ivory Child (1916) 8. The Ancient Allan (1920) 9. She and Allan (1920) 10. Extracanonical Work: Magepa the Buck (1912)

Allan Quatermain

Author: H. Rider Haggard Narrator: John Nicholson Release Date: February 2017

This sequel to King Solomon's Mines is filled with the spirit of adventure. Three men and their guide trek into remote Africa in search of a lost white race. Their perilous journey takes them to Zu-Vendis, a kingdom ruled by the beautiful twin sisters, Nyleptha and Sorais. Thrilled by rumors of a lost civilization, three Englishmen decide to travel to the heart of Africa with their Zulu guide, where they meet with continual peril: an attack by a cruel warrior tribe, the scorch of underground volcanic fires, and an encounter with a huge species of ferocious black crab. Exhausted and depleted of supplies, the men at last arrive at a mysterious city in the highlands of the interior. The people, called the Zu-Vendi, enjoy a civilization suggesting Egyptian origin, which includes a sun-worshiping priesthood. The travelers immediately fall into disfavor with the priests by shooting some sacred hippopotami. More problems arise when Sir Henry falls in love with one of the twin queens who rule the land. Her devious sister becomes jealous, and civil war erupts.
