    Richard le Gallienne was an English poet and critic, who, although unfamiliar with the Persian language, had a profound interest in the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. In 1897 he published a collection of 211 quatrains, which was based on earlier English translations, in particular the prose version by Justin Huntly McCarthy. A expanded edition, containing fifty additional quatrains was published in 1901, and this has been used for the present recording. (Summary by Algy Pug)

    Four years ago, Nick Laverdi left his hometown of Barren in northern New Jersey and moved directly east to the city of New York. After the well-publicized collapse of the only famous person to ever come from Barren, the town picked up a crippling reputation that it was never able to shake. Each native bears its burden like a cross, and Nick is no different. He has spent his whole life trying to disassociate himself with his hometown, and on his first trip home since he left, Nick’s mission is simple: move his parents out of his childhood home. A drive down memory lane, otherwise known as Wanaque Avenue, quickly complicates this task. Memories abound as he conjures up thoughts of deceased friends, lost opportunities, miscalculated risks, and a town that is hard to escape successfully. It leaves Nick questioning why he ever thought he could get away in the first place. His arrival home does little to ease his torment. An emotional reunion with his mother and a distant reunion with his father offer glimpses into his own failures as he grew up and attempted to leave unscathed. Ultimately, a conversation with his older sister reminds Nick that even though he physically left Barren, it will take a lot more than relocating to wash away its stench completely.

    Two Gentlemen Of Verona is believed to be one of Shakespeare’s early comedies and as a result provides us with the first examples of a number of themes and devices that are further explored in many of his plays.  These include loyalty, friendship and the nature of love.  Also women dressing up as men is introduced by one of the central characters, Julia, dressing up as the page, Sebastian, to serve her loved one, Proteus, who has betrayed her.  Although fewer characters than most of Shakespeare’s other plays, they are interesting ones and Ghizela Rowe in her reading, captures the story of this intriguing play with clarity.

    Volume 3 of Let George Do It! Before Johnny Dollar came along, radio favorite Bob Bailey was starred in an offbeat private-eye series entitled “Let George Do It”. As played by Bailey, George Valentine was an ex-cop-turned-private-investigator who eschewed muscle in favor of manual dexterity and analytical thinking skills. 
     His friendly nemeses on the police force included Lieutenant Riley (Wally Maher) and Lieutenant Johnson (Ken Christy) and he also depended on his gal Friday, Claire Brooks (“Brooksie”), played first by Frances Robinson and later by Virginia Gregg. 
     The twenty episodes in this collection, restored by Radio Archives, give you the chance to really hear what happens when you “Let George Do It”.

    Theatre doesn’t have much relevance anymore. Or so acclaimed playwright Darren O’Donnell tells us. The dynamics of unplanned social interaction, he says, are far more compelling than any play he could produce. So his latest show, A Suicide-Site Guide to the City, isn’t really a show; it’s an interactive chitchat about memory, depression, and 9/11, a dazzling whirl of talking streetcars, pizza and schizophrenia. And it’s hilarious.
     
    O’Donnell’s artistic practice has evolved into ‘something as close to hanging out as you can come and still charge admission.’ With his theatre company, Mammalian Diving Reflex, O’Donnell has generated a series of ongoing events that induce interactions between strangers in public; the Talking Creature, Q&A, Home Tours, the Toronto Strategy Meetings and Diplomatic Immunities bring people together in odd configurations, ask revealing questions and prove the generosity,abundance and power of the social sphere.
     
    Social Acupuncture includes the full text of A Suicide-Site Guide to the City and an extensive essay on the waning significance of theatre and the notion of civic engagement and social interaction as an aesthetic.
     
    ‘No other playwright working in Toronto right now has O’Donnell’s talent for synthesizing psychosocial, artistic and political random thoughts and reflections into compelling analyses … The world (not to mention the theatre world) could use more of this, if only to get us talking and debating.’
