These two actors would lend a sense of gravitas to any audio recording and these particular stories chosen by Mr. Welles and Mr. Redgrave are definitive selections of the Russian cannon. As with many stories in the genre they circle around themes of tragic irony with elements of comedy and terror.
Theatre Royal is a unique series of classic radio dramas produced in the 1950s by the late Harry Alan Towers. Starring the leading theatre artists of the day it is the only series of radio dramas in which Laurence Olivier ever appeared. He was joined by Ralph Richardson, John Gielgud, Orson Welles, Robert Morley, John Mills, Michael Redgrave, Trevor Howard, Robert Donut, Alec Guinness and Margaret Lockwood.
Over the Years, Theatre Royal has received a glittering array of accolades, including: “vivid, tense, and compressed.”( Classic radio)
“Craft, like character, ages well.”(Daily Telegraph)
“Great fun to listen to and, as radio history, they are unsurpassed.” (Sunday Telegraph)
“Voices like these justify the Golden Days tag. We won't hear their like again.” (Sunday Times)
“A must for archive fans. The excitement of vintage radio drama with strong storylines.” (Radio Times.)

For the Voices alone.
Stories adapted for radio and performed by great actors. As such, I find them a good introduction to the stories as written by the authors.
The remastering comes over well on my pc speakers.
A joy to hear Orson Wells and Sir Michael Redgraves..
