Publisher's Summary

Everyone deserves to get away for a bit. Even the miscreants at St Mary's.
Astonishingly, Dr. Bairstow has declared a holiday. Even more astonishingly - he's paying for it. Needless to say, there are strings attached. They have to record the 1601 performance of Hamlet, with Shakespeare himself in the role of the Ghost. It doesn't go well, of course.
With Dr Bairstow and Mrs Mack turning a simple visit to a street market into a public brawl, Professor Rapson inadvertently stowing away on a vessel bound for the New World, and Shakespeare himself going up in flames, it would seem that Max, of all people, is the only one actually completing the assignment.

Saint Mary's Meet Shakespeare

Where does The Great St. Mary's Day Out rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Quite high... this was a lot of fun.

What did you like best about this story?

The circus-like farce in general. Each group of Saint Mary's staff with their own adventures.

Have you listened to any of Zara Ramm’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, she does an excellent job as usual.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This story was pretty light hearted ad I was laughing out loud several times.

Any additional comments?

This takes place after Lies, Damned Lies, And History and before And The Rest Is History. Contains some spoilers for Lies, Damned Lies, And history. Recommended.

Wonderful short story - Absolutely Love the St Mary’s series !

Highly recommend The Chronicles of St Mary's series - always waiting for the next book or novella to come out !
A crazy good series - it’s a roller coaster ride with very funny & clever dialogue - & Zara Ramm delivers it beautifully - she is an amazing narrator !
Do yourself a favor & read the series . Actually I highly recommend anything by Jodi Taylor - the Frogmorton Farm books as well as the new series - White Silence !

A classic St Marys featuring Bill the flaming Bard

If you could sum up The Great St. Mary's Day Out in three words, what would they be?

Lighthearted, classic, romp

Who was your favorite character and why?

A certain, Bristolian member of the security section is always my favourite character - becuase, well, the Gods love a trier

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The post romp interview in the directors study is always fun

Any additional comments?

Zara Ramm is simply the best narrator I have yet heard in 200 audiobooks

Loved this story. Rip roaring tale full of energy and fun. Great to catch up on what happens after the huge events at the end of book 7 (no spoilers) and, as always, love Markham. Listened to it in one sitting, then immediately went back to the start and listened to it again. Can't believe how Jodi Taylor can cram so much into one short story. Favourite line? Possibly that Matthew is not to be used as a draft excluder. Naughty Jodi to stir up the mud again over Markham's status - trying to avoid spoilers again! Love, love, loved it.
