Where she came from, who her parents were, and who really stole the gold are the secrets that fill this moving tale of guilt and innocence. 
     
    A moral allegory of the redemptive power of love, it is also a finely drawn portrait of early nineteenth-century England in the days when spinning wheels hummed busily in the farmhouses and of a simple way of life that was soon to disappear.

    Shakespeare’s tragic drama about a Roman general tested by rioting, war, rejection—and his own all-consuming anger.   Enraged by the withholding of food, the common people of the Roman Republic are rebelling against the elite. In this battle between plebeians and patricians, Caius Marcius has little patience for those he considers beneath him and his family.   After his military victory in the city of Corioli, Marcius is given the nickname Coriolanus and enters the world of politics, fiercely loyal to the state. But his continuing contempt for ordinary citizens proves to be his downfall—for after he attempts to end the democratic institution of the tribunals, he is banished.   As Coriolanus seethes in exile, his thirst for revenge will soon threaten the very republic he once served, in this classic play based on historical events in the ancient world.

    Sidney Keyes' great allegorical tale of a race between a newfangled steamroller with a top speed of five miles per hour and a horse-drawn hearse, whose two old nags are accustomed to a stately pace appropriate to the transportation of the dead. The race takes on a wider significance as an allegory of progress and the advent of the age of the machine versus the old thoughtful way of life.When the two vehicles set off from their starting point, the village inn ("The Sad Man's Rest") nobody can really predict which vehicle will arrive first at the finish line, eight miles away. As it turns out, the outcome of the race is very different and more momentous than anyone could have predicted. A story which truly challenges the listener to think through the wider implications of what started out as a simple pub challenge.
