Synopsis: The story follows an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur. He falls to galley slave and rises to champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ, while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere. Complete with chariot race, sea battle, and stage combat, Patrick Barlow weaves his compressed style popularized by The 39 Steps into one of the largest stories ever told.

Synopsis: The Curious Savage is the story of an elderly widow named Mrs. Savage, whose deceased husband had left her $10 million dollars. She intends to give the entire fortune away to people who wish to pursue their ‘foolish dreams,’ but her stepchildren strongly object.

To prevent her from doing away with their family’s wealth and ruining their legacy, they have her committed to an institution called The Cloisters, where she meets some unlikely friends. 

She ends up liquidating the investments and converting them into bonds that she has hidden. This causes a panic among the stepchildren who try desperately to track down these bonds.
