9781406800166: Captain Blood

Abounding with adventure, color, romance, and strong social commentary on the evils of slavery and the dangers of intolerance, this classic adventure is a story about how oppression drives men to desperate actions, how fate plays a hand in everyone's life, and how love is ultimately the greatest power of all.

About the Author:

Jerry Robbins, co-founder of the Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air has written and produced over 350 radio plays, including Ticonderoga, Captain Blood, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Gettysburg, Treasure Island, Yankee Clipper, Powder River, and Little Big Horn. In 2006 he started a collaboration with legendary author Ray Bradbury, producing Dandelion Wine, followed by Something Wicked This Way Comes, and wrote the script for, and produced The Halloween Tree; all award winning productions that garnered high praise from the master himself. He is currently working on a fourth collaboration with Mr. Bradbury, a radio dramatization of The Martian Chronicles.

From AudioFile:

The Colonial Radio Theatre's performance of Sabatini's historical adventure about an Irishman wrongly convicted of treason who escapes slavery into the life piratical is generally well served by sound effects (good explosions!) and music. The adaptation, however, is serviceable, if sometimes awkward. And the actors are not easy and natural in their roles, and a few are quite bad. Accents (which are constant) are a sore point: the British weak, the Spanish clichŽd, the French abysmal. Especially hard to listen to is the mannered and sepulchral narrator. This program deserves credit for effort and earnestness, and for some rousing moments, but mediocre acting, like Captain Blood himself, triumphs in the end.
