The inimitable Laurence Olivier and Alec Guinness lead this fully restored and remastered production from the Theatre Royal. Originally produced in the 1950s, this collection showcases the dramatic adaptations of H. G. Wells’ "The Man Who Could Work Miracles" and Robert Louis Stevenson’s "The Suicide Club". Guinness and company’s exaggerated and playful tones ensure the comedy of Wells' classic tale will not get by without its deserved laughs. And Laurence Olivier, one of the English world’s greatest dramatic actors, leads listeners right into the suspense and secrecy of Stevenson’s story.
