    Leo Tolstoy's timeless tale of a court official's long and drawn out death is both a masterful metaphysical exploration of the meaning of death, and a masterstroke of inspirational storytelling. First published in 1886, this classic of Russian literature is considered one of the great examples of the novella in all of literary fiction. An absorbing listen of a classic story.

    Pitch-black humor and brutal social commentary from the Tony Award-winning playwright: “Relentlessly fierce, relentlessly funny.”—Ben Brantley, The New York Times 
     
    Looking for a little rest and time by herself, Betty rents a summer share at the beach. But Betty's luck turns when this sensible Everywoman gets drawn into the chaotic world of some very unsavory housemates: her friend Trudy, who talks too much; the lewd, semi-naked Buck, who tries to have sex with everyone; and Keith, a serial killer who hides in his room with a mysterious hatbox. With sand between her toes, walking a thin line between sanity and survival, poor Betty will leave her summer vacation more terrorized than tan—in this Obie Award-winning play from Christopher Durang, who “proves to be every bit as sharp and caustic as England’s Joe Orton” (David Kaufman, New York Daily News). 
     
    “Not only wickedly funny but a commentary on the state of American culture.”—Curtis Ellis, MSNBC 
     
    “A comedian whose fury takes the form of farce.”—John Lahr, The New Yorker

    Play description  
    ACT I  
    Scene 1. Antonio is a rich merchant in Venice; ships bearing his goods sail round the world. Antonio’s  
    friend Bassanio has fallen in love with Portia, a wealthy and beautiful young woman dwelling in  
    Belmont, but lacks the means to woo her in appropriate style; he asks Antonio for help. Antonio’s  
    fortune is all with his ships at sea, but he vows to borrow whatever sums Bassanio may require in  
    order to help his friend.  
    Scene 2. In Belmont, Portia complains to her maid Nerissa that she has not been left free to choose her  
    husband for herself. Her dead father has devised a test consisting of three caskets made of gold, silver,  
    and lead; only the suitor who chooses the right casket may marry Portia.  
    Scene 3. Bassanio has gone to Shylock, a wealthy Jew, to borrow money on Antonio’s credit. Shylock  
    is deeply hostile to Antonio, who makes no attempt to hide the contempt he feels for him.  
    Nonetheless, Shylock is prepared to lend his enemy the sum required on condition that, if the money is  
    not repaid when it is due, Shylock will have the right to cut a pound of flesh from Antonio’s body.  
    Bassanio is horrified, but Antonio accepts the  
    condition, confident that his ships will have returned in time.

    Cwtch up with a friend, a pet or a toy,
    Cwtching is fun with a girl or a boy.
    
    Cwtch someone big or cwtch someone tiny,
    Your cwtch will make them feel warm and sunshiny.
    
    Cwtch is a Welsh word used to describe a whole lot of love. This endearing illustrated poem introduces the term to the English language in order to share its healing, human warmth.
    
    Written by Sarah KilBride and illustrated by James Munro.
    
    'perfect as a stocking-filler for loved one, the book is full of warmth and fun. […] James Munro's illustrations are perfect partners for the text – fun, witty and deceptively simple. A Welsh dragon is a recurring character throughout the book, adding a fun element for young readers to spot.' Jenny White, Western Mail
