Can the real prince reclaim his right before an imposter is crowned in his place? And will his look-alike give up his regal position and return to a life of poverty?An adventure for the young and young at heart, bursting with non-stop excitement, wit and warmth, as the spirit of Twain's beloved classic comes to life with a full cast, music score, and thousands of sound effects.

    ACT I  
    Scene 1. Timon is a noble Athenian, renowned for his generosity. Amongst others, a poet, a painter, a  
    merchant and a jeweller have come to his house, seeking patronage. Examples of Timon’s kindness  
    abound: upon learning that Ventidius has been imprisoned for a debt of five talents, he does not  
    hesitate to pay off the sum. He also provides his servant Lucilius with the money he needs to win the  
    hand of a wealthy girl. When the gruff Apemantus arrives, however, he pours scorn on the flatterers  
    surrounding Timon.  
    Scene 2. Timon gives a great banquet in his house. Ventidius comes intending to repay his debt, but  
    Timon refuses to accept any money. As Timon exchanges pleasantries with his guests, they are  
    entertained with a masque. Meanwhile, Apemantus continues his cynical commentary on the  
    proceedings. Flavius, Timon’s steward, worries privately that his master’s fortune is almost exhausted.  
    ACT II  
    Scene 1. A Senator sends his servant to call in money owed to him by Timon.  
    Scene 2. When Timon’s creditors begin to press for payment he is at last forced to listen to Flavius  
    who tells him that all his property has been lost. Not unduly perturbed, Timon sends to his friends for  
    help.

    From the journal of William Bradford, this audio production dramatizes the trials and tribulations of the Pilgrims and the events that lead up to their sailing from Southampton, England in the year 1620.  
    "Jerry Robbins and the Colonial Radio Players bring to life the persecution and betrayals of the Puritans, while still in Europe, that compelled their flight to the New World. [It] is historically correct, and remains both exciting and fun. This audio presentation has a full cast and music score, with lots of sound effects, engaging your attention and imagination. The Plimoth Adventure, Voyage of Mayflower makes history more personal for the listener" - Dean Carlisle, All Star Review

    Lyn Tett has developed her discussion of community education to include aspects of learning and development in this revised and expanded third edition of her popular text. The book illustrates the conceptual and political debates surrounding the role, purpose and practice of community education, learning and development. Community Education, Learning and Development moves behind the policy rhetoric to recognise and explore some of the tensions in current policy trends, particularly the danger of seeing social marginalisation and exclusion as an individual problem rather than a result of structured inequalities. A number of community education, learning and development projects are examined to give a real sense of the approach being advocated and to make a case for a model of lifelong learning focusing on democratic renewal. The task of community educators and those concerned with learning and development is not an easy one. They must recognise competing interests but still enable voices that have been excluded to be heard, whilst also seeking ways of building mutual understandings and cooperation. The challenge for community education is considerable but this book provides a real sense of its possibilities for learning and development throughout life.

    From hot marital sex to Julia Child's own recipe for the perfect French kiss, Wild Amerika will take you on a hilarious, Darwinist romp through mating, marriage and monogamy. Using the tropes of documentary and her own life story, Schickel stitches together a crazy quilt of dream and experience and satire and longing, taking us from the dawn of humanity to the birth of her own daughter. Erika Schickel is a canary in the coal mine of modern day American womanhood. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Shannon Cochran, Paul Mercier and Erika Schickel.
