Summary
A very amusing collection of stories from yesteryear given the comic touch of The madness of King George film star, sadly now deceased, Nigel Hawthorne with authors such as Mark Twain, O. Henry, Saki and Kipling. CSA have assembled a varied collection of short stories which we are confident will keep the listener constantly amused over its three hour length. So, from Kipling's inebriated duo struggling home to Hammersmith from the City of London docks, one of them pushing the other in a wheelbarrow, via the classic village cricket match played next to The Three Horseshoes pub from England, Their England to Saki's sardonic view of upper middle-class house parties. There's a classic case of mistaken identity in Dickens' The great Winglebury duel and Lewis Carroll's tale of a photographer who is obsessed about taking photographs of girls called Amelia! American authors have their say with the short story specialist O. Henry's likeable scoundrels and Mark Twain's compulsive gambler in Jeff Peters as a personal magnet and The celebrated jumping frog of Calaveras County
