The Golden Bowl

Adapted from the Henry James classic
Presented by the St. Charles Players
Henry James' classic. Relationships complex and fascinating, often riddled with selfishness, sprinkled with courage, sometimes cruelty, and yes, passion. For an American millionaire and his daughter at home in turn-of-the-century England, marriages to a pair of former lovers bring complications to their would-be happiness. Amidst social rumors, the imperfection of the fragile bond of relationships weakens similarly to a crack in an otherwise perfect golden bowl.
Faithful in adaptation to the source literature, monterey soundWorks was founded on the principal that a full scale audio dramatization using multiple actors, original music scores and digital sound effects created a full entertainment experience for the listener in a manner that can never be achieved by a single voice narration in a typical books-on-tape production.
