King of Alsander (Dramatic Reading)

James Elroy Flecker

More Information

Description:

First published in 1914, the King of Alsander is the only novel by James Elroy Flecker, best known as a poet, but also a noted scholar, linguist and diplomat. Flecker's love of learning, language and travel, and his keen satirical insight into politics are all in evidence in this phantasmagoric tale. As the author himself describes it: Here is a tale all romance - a tale such as only a Poet can write for you, O appreciative and generous Public - a tale of madmen, kings, scholars, grocers, consuls, and Jews: a tale with two heroines, both of an extreme and indescribable beauty: a tale of the South and of sunshine, wherein will be found disguises, mysteries, conspiracies, fights, at least one good whipping, and plenty of blood and love and absurdity: a very old sort of tale: a tale as joyously improbable as life itself. - Summary by Algy Pug Cast list: Norman Price: Phil Benson John Oggs: Phil Benson Labourer: Phil Benson Mrs Gaffekin: Michele Eaton Nancy: Michele Eaton Peronella: Michele Eaton Malsprita: Michele Eaton Guard: Michele Eaton Crowd: Michele Eaton Vicar: Patrick Wallace Old Man: Patrick Wallace William Price: Patrick Wallace Canthrop: Patrick Wallace Cesano: Patrick Wallace Wizened Man: Patrick Wallace Consul: Patrick Wallace Vorza: Patrick Wallace Colonel: Patrick Wallace Vicar’s Daughter: Eden Rea-Hedrick Widow Prasko: Eden Rea-Hedrick Shopkeeper: Eden Rea-Hedrick President: Eden Rea-Hedrick Arnolfo: Eden Rea-Hedrick Ianthe: Eden Rea-Hedrick Drakina: Eden Rea-Hedrick Cuvas: Eden Rea-Hedrick Peter Smith: Eden Rea-Hedrick Lady: Eden Rea-Hedrick John Gaffekin: Alan Weyman King: Alan Weyman Butler: Alan Weyman Doctor: Alan Weyman Clerk: Alan Weyman Makzelo: Alan Weyman Father Algio: Alan Weyman Captain of the Guard: Alan Weyma
