Orson Welles IS Brutus

Fantastic performance from Orson Welles, gripping storyline, thanks to his ability to build tension in his speeches. Too much background noise and a very very dodgy song, but for the time. It was great.

Great play, but what were they saying?

The story was interesting but hindered by bad quality. This is not really an audiobook, but an old radio show.
