GCSE text

Bought for my son who studied this as a GCSE text, I listened to this myself and enjoyed the dramatic interpretation. My mother also enjoyed it so I would suggest it is a classic which appeals to a range of listeners.

Useful for GCSEs

I found it useful to listen to this a few times before my exam. I am yet to know if it has been effective revision. Wish me luck!

Exploring the nature of Time

Priestly was interested in the nature of time and wrote on this topic as well as social justice.

It was good to hear this Classic Radio Theatre production. Well done.

I suppose like Huxley, the writing expresses ideas and asks readers to think.

Not So Much Mystery

This dramatization of Priestley's play is not so much mystery as examination of society. There is a denouement, perhaps anticipated, but still analytical.
