King John

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: William Shakespeare

Narrated By: A Full Cast

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: May 2006

Duration: 2 hours 29 minutes

Summary:

King John of England is pitted against the united powers of France, Brittany, Austria, and the Papacy. Will England be destroyed by his fatal indecision?

As alliances are made, broken, and remade, the paranoid and erratic John reveals his weakness and reliance on those around him—including his powerful mother Queen Elinor and Faulconbridge, the cynical and witty bastard son of the dead King Richard I.

In this early history play, King John is played by Michael Feast, the Bastard by Michael Maloney, and Constance by Eileen Atkins.

“Straightforward, noncontroversial interpretations…It pays off richly with less familiar works like King John, an early history that dramatizes the indecisive king’s attempt to settle an alliance with France. The chief merits of this production are Michael Maloney’s performance as the scheming bastard son of Richard I and the intrigues surrounding the death of young Arthur, claimant to the throne.”—AudioFile
