Fun little farce!

(5 Sterne)

Augustin Jedd, the dean of St. Marvells, only THINKS he has his family, household, and personal dignity all under control. Enter a couple soldiers courting his daughters, his horse-racing widowed sister, and the race horse called Dandy Dick, and his supposed hold on everything slips from his fingers. Well voice-acted by the readers. Thanks for the enjoyment!

English Humor is Lost on Americans

(5 Sterne)

While I found the situations funny, I'm sure I missed many of the jokes that I'm sure the English would find very funny. The recording was excellent and the voicing seemed to match the persona of the characters.
