Dinner: A full-cast production of the acclaimed black comedy Audiobook

Dinner: A full-cast production of the acclaimed black comedy

A deliciously black satirical comedy about the dinner party from hell. The fastidious host, Paige, decides to throw a dinner party in honour of her husband Lars, who is celebrating the success of his pop psychology book, Beyond Belief. She carefully plans a surprise menu that will mark the occasion, and anxiously checks with the waiter she has employed to make sure that everything is perfectly prepared. Her lucky guests include a post-feminist vegetarian artist, a distinguished microbiologist, a TV journalist and an uninvited guest who ends up staying for dinner. But it soon becomes apparent that the meal may contain some rather nasty surprises... Moira Buffini's outrageous comedy Dinner started life in the National Theatre's Loft in 2002, and became her first West End smash. In this production, adapted by the writer for BBC Drama on 3, Harriet Walter returns to the role she created: Paige, the hostess and architect of an evening which her guests will never forget. Two other original leads, Nicholas Farrell and Penny Downie, and four new cast members join her in this viciously black chamber piece about appetite, which will make you think twice about ever accepting another invitation to dinner.Moira Buffini was nominated for an Olivier Award for Dinner in 2003, and won the Olivier in 2014 for her play Handbagged.CastPaige........................Harriet WalterLars........................Nicholas FarrellWynne........................Penny DownieHal........................Paul BazelySian........................Pippa Bennett-WarnerMike........................Peter McDonaldWaiter........................David HounslowProduced and directed by Jonquil Panting

The Merry Wives of Windsor Audiobook

The Merry Wives of Windsor

It is said that Queen Elizabeth gave Shakespeare two weeks to write this play that showcases her favorite comedic character, Sir John Falstaff. The dissolute Falstaff plans to seduce Mistress Ford and Mistress Page, two “Merry Wives of Windsor,” thereby gaining access to their husbands’ wealth. The two women have the old rogue’s measure, however, and Falstaff’s plots lead only to his own humiliation. But the merry wives themselves fall prey to plotting as their plans to prevent Mistress Page’s daughter Anne from marrying the young man she loves are frustrated in their turn. Dinsdale Landen is Falstaff. Sylvestra Le Touzel plays Mistress Ford and Penny Downie is Mistress Page. Nicholas Woodeson is Ford, Phillip Jackson is Page, and Clive Swift plays Justice Shallow. “At the request of the Queen, Shakespeare wrought this farce starring Sir John Falstaff…Director Clive Brill has orchestrated a rousing production that concentrates on clarity…this is a delightful addition to Arkangel’s series of the complete, uncut Shakespeare plays.”—AudioFile
