By Jane Austen
The Austen Collection
David production managed several of the dramas featured in this new collection from Audible. Recording for these dramas was done mostly remotely!
Renowned as much for her wit and satirical social commentary as for her stories of love and romance, Jane Austen remains one of Britain’s best-loved authors. In this Audible Original collection featuring dramatisations of her six beloved novels, Austen's pin-sharp humour and tone is perfectly captured by an all-star list of narrators (Claire Foy, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billie Piper, Florence Pugh and Emma Thompson), each accompanied by a full cast.

Directed by Kate Saxon, David was the production manager on this HUGE drama, with 59 actors recorded under strict Covid Guidelines!
Lovers. Outlaws. Hell Cats.
This Audible Original Podcast tells the lost story of history’s most progressive pirates, Anne Bonny and Mary Read. Their tale of cutthroat adventure and an enduring love affair remains largely forgotten – overlooked by historians who prioritised the achievements of their male peers. Until now.
Starring Erin Doherty as Mary Read, Michelle Fox as Anne Bonny, Fisayo Akinade as Pierre Bouspeut and Jonathan Bailey as Captain Jack Rackham.
