The two are fairly matched in this psychological cage fight-style take on the work … so as to emphasize the humorous more than the tragic aspect.

Brothers at War

An unusual choice for Audible as this is a cast recording of an excellent but very visible production of Sam Shepherd's curious play performed recently at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. Great work by the two leads, Kit Harrington and Johnny Flynn. A must for anyone studying contemporary American drama - a bit of a puzzle for anyone who has not seen or read the play

Intense bristling with a kinder box for frustration

An interesting insight into sibling relationships. I don’t normally like historical or novel not set in the 20th Century, but the superb acting and excellent American accents took me to the heart of this story in the heart of the Midwest. Primarily a two handset by all accounts with 2 other character who appear briefly. The underlying tension and frustration with the bothers is palpable. A good listen for a rainy aft
