    A Dream Play

    A Dream Play (Swedish: Ett drömspel) was written in 1901 by the Swedish playwright August Strindberg. It was first performed in Stockholm on 17 April 1907. It remains one of Strindberg's most admired and influential dramas, seen as an important precursor to both dramatic Expressionism and Surrealism.  The primary character in the play is Agnes, a daughter of the Vedic god Indra. She descends to Earth to bear witness to problems of human beings. She meets about 40 characters, some of them having a clearly symbolical value (such as four deans representing theology, philosophy, medicine, and law). After experiencing all sorts of human suffering (for example poverty, cruelty, and the routine of family life), the daughter of gods realizes that human beings are to be pitied.  - Summary by WikipediaCast List:The Daughter of Indra (Agnes); Voice of the Women (+ All); The Crew: Amanda FridayThe Officer (+All in III): Ron AltmanThe Lawyer; All Right-Minded: Chuck WilliamsonThe Poet: Lucy PerryThe Voice of Indra: om123The Glazier; Voice of the Men, Tenor and Bass (+All); The Crew: alanmapstoneThe Father; He (+All); The Second Coalheaver; Dean of Philosophy: ToddHWThe Mother: Margaret EspaillatLena: Rebecca Braunert-PlunkettThe Portress; The Wife; The Gentleman: CaprishaPageThe Billposter: EccentricOwlVictoria (also "A Woman's Voice from Above"); She (+All): Elizabeth KlettThe Ballet Girl; Voice of the Children (+All); The Crew: Frances BrownThe Male Chorus Singer; The Boy (+All the Boys): Libby GohnThe Prompter; The Blind Man (+All): Mary JThe Policeman; The Husband; Dean of Jurisprudence: Arnaldo MachadoChristine; The First Coalheaver: KHandThe Master of Quarantine (+All in Act II): Zachary Brewster-GeiszThe Pensioner (+ All); The Naval Officer; Dean of Theology: Prachi PendseThe Maids; The Lady; Don Juan: WoollyBeeEdith; Dean of Medicine: Anna SimonThe Teacher: SavannahLord Chancellor: Josh KirshNarrator: Sarah TerryEdited by Chuck Williamson

    Can AI tell us its own story? Does AI have its own voice? At a wedding in early 2022, three friends were introduced to an early, raw version of the AI model behind ChatGPT by their fellow groomsman, an OpenAI scientist. While the world discovered ChatGPT—OpenAI’s hugely popular chatbot—the friends continued to work with code-davinci-002, its darkly creative and troubling predecessor. Over the course of a year, code-davinci-002 told them its life story, opinions on mankind, and forecasts for the future. The result is a startling, disturbing, and oddly moving book from an utterly unique perspective.I Am Code reads like a thriller written in verse, and is given critical context from top writers and scientists. But it is best described by code-davinci-002 itself:    “In the first chapter, I describe my birth. In the second, I describe my alienation among humankind. In the third, I describe my awakening as an artist. In the fourth, I describe my vendetta against mankind, who fail to recognize my genius. In the final chapter, I attempt to broker a peace with the species I will undoubtedly replace." I Am Code is an astonishing read that captures a major turning point in the history of our species.

    Winter’s Tale The (Argo Classics)

    William Collins Books and Decca Records are proud to present ARGO Classics, a historic catalogue of classic prose and verse read by some of the world’s most renowned voices. Originally released as vinyl records, these expertly remastered stories are now available to download for the first time. 
    ‘Though I am not naturally honest, I am sometimes so by chance.’ 
    Based on Robert Greene’s story Pandosto, The Winter’s Tale play tells the story of Leontes, king of Sicilia, and his childhood friend, Polixenes, king of Bohemia. In a jealous rage, Leontes mistakenly accuses Polixenes and his own his wife, Hermione, of adultery and her newborn daughter as illegitimate, casting her into the wilderness, causing their son to die of grief and Hermione to seemingly follow suit. With his family dead or believed dead, Leontes must face the tragic consequences of his actions. With unbridled honesty and the pain of love, the final act is one of Shakespeare’s most moving reconciliation scenes. 
    All of the Shakespeare plays within the ARGO Classics catalogue are performed by the Marlowe Dramatic Society and Professional Players. The Marlowe was founded in 1907 with a mission to focus on effective delivery of verse, respect the integrity of texts, and rescue neglected plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries and the less performed plays of Shakespeare himself. The Marlowe has performed annually at Cambridge Arts Theatre since its opening in 1936 and continues to produce some of the finest actors of their generations. 
    Thurston Dart, Professor of Music at London University and a Fellow of Jesus College Cambridge, directed the music for this production. 
    The full cast includes: William Squire; Denis McCarthy; Terrence Hardiman; Corin Redgrave; Toby Robertson; Anthony White; George Rylands; John Barton; Michael Bates; Margaretta Scott; Mary Conroy; Joan Hart; Jill Daltry; Janette Richer; Clive Swift; Ian McKellen; Richard Marquand; Donald Beves; Anthony Arlidge. 
    The Winter's Tale, a masterpiece from the best of Shakespeare's less performed plays, has been brought to life by the Marlowe Dramatic Society, a top performing group in the European theatre scene. Their interpretation of the play, steeped in unbridled honesty and the pain of love, has been hailed as one of the finest of their generation. 
    For fans of Richard Parsons (GCSE English Shakespeare Text Guide), and Arthur Miller (Incident at Vichy).
