Excellent Audio Production

Charles Beaumont was a great science fiction author and this tale is no exception. The cast, headed by Rosalyn Ayres and Martin Jarvis did a very good job alongside narrator Stacy Keach and several, unknown to me American (?) actors who also added drama to the marvellous storyline. This audiobook was great value and a very enjoyable listening experience.

Slow Burner

Where does Passage on the Lady Anne rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've read barely 7 eBooks and I've only finished other Twilight Zone Radio Dramas audiobooks. I'll rank this number 3.

What did you like best about this story?

Well one part made my heart jump, I won't spoil it for prospective listeners but it was telling of the style of the drama, how reached it's goal in such a slow way that you didn't know you were there even when you reached it. It was a moment when the drama decided not to be slow.

What about Rosalyn Ayres and Stacy Keach ’s performance did you like?

This is a drama so it features the voice of about 10 or so actors. The narrator Stacy Keach had about 5% talking time. I liked the actors, maybe I found one annoying but I think that was the point.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, I won't give a spoiler by mentioning it here but a glass broke at that point as well.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is in the average to good category of Twilight Zone Radio Dramas. I wouldn't recommend it as a first listen of Twilight Zone Radio Dramas as you might find it too slow (try To Serve Man on the Twilight Zone Radio Drama's website). Like all Twilight Zone Radio Drama's, it's best read in the night with the lights off. You're in luck if the moon decides to be out that night and casts some light through your window. That'll crown the effect :)

old fashioned, but enjoyable

This story is the audio version of a 1963 Twilight Zone episode; it's very dated in characterizations and setting, but it's a kind of creepy story nonetheless.

True to the series

If you could sum up Passage on the Lady Anne in three words, what would they be?

I liked this episode. It was enjoyable, creepy and interesting. The Twilight Zone isn't a deep, thought provoking analysis of why people are on earth. This short was enjoyable for what it is - entertainment.

Very enjoyable.

A nice mix of the spooky and elegant. I've been listening to The Twilight Zone for over 60 years now.

Builds up then...nothing

Passage on the Lady Anne by Charles Beaumont is a short but odd tale about a ship of nothing but elderly people who do not want a younger couple on the ship. There is a big build up, a lot of confusion, then..nothing.
The narration was so so.
