Chameleon Sunset is a period comedy stage play, set in a Sussex manor house and a London art gallery in 1934. It is the Annual Public Open Day at Donnington Hall, Sussex. Advanced in years, adventuress Leonora Bradshaw has just returned from her latest expedition in South America to help her sister Isobel, Lady Donnington, to run the Donnington estate. The sisters are both recently widowed. Isobel is finding estate management a heavy burden, due in part to the lassitude of her son, Dorian, a would-be modern artist of the Mondrian school. At the beginning of the play, we join confidence trickster to the gentry, Percy Burrows, and his daughter, Florence, as they break away from the public tour of the manor. Although set in the 1930s world of modern art, this play deals with topics that are equally relevant to today´s Britain. Chameleon Sunset satirises issues of heredity versus environment, class distinctions, ethics and morals. It explores the nature of becoming an adult, and what it means to be a mother. All done with gentle humour. Think Downton Abbey but with way more laughs! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Groves, Eva Gray.

England, 1659: Captain Kit Faulkner´s house is prospering; his eldest son recently returned from a profitable trip to Jamaica, and his daughter has made a suitable match with a young sailor. But the resignation of the Lord Protector, Richard Cromwell, throws England into uncertainty. Will the republic flourish, or will a King return to the throne? Kit is content to let matters take their natural course, but his younger son, Henry, is an idealist with political ambitions. It soon becomes clear that Henry is in much deeper than Kit first realised, and his actions may threaten everything that Kit holds dear.… 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Wickham.

As Peter Sellers´ close friend and confidant over many years, actor Graham Stark is in the unique position to record the real story of the man as well as the actor. Graham Stark appeared in 13 films with Peter Sellers, including all the legendary Pink Panther movies, and their close personal and professional relationship led to the many extraordinary adventures chronicled in this lively and entertaining recording. From the public house in London, where the Goon Shows were born, to the exclusive Sardi´s restaurant in New York, where Sellers was the toast of the town; from the golden days of radio and variety to the truth behind his involvements with some of the world´s most glamourous women, this warm and intimate memoir is packed with personal anecdotes which reveal the many and often surprising sides of the chameleon Sellers, whose own character was as complex and diverse as the legendary scene characters he created. Now available in an abridged form, this candid account of a friendship which lasted from their first meeting in the RAF in 1945 to Sellers´ death in 1980 documents the life and times of a true comic genius. 1.
