What do a storm on the mighty Mississippi, a stagecoach robbery, a lost heir, an unjust accusation of theft, and the California Gold Rush all have in common? They are all exciting scenes from the newest audio drama produced by Heirloom Audio Productions! Captain Bayley’s Heir is the eighth installment of the Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty, once again starring Brian Blessed as the voice of Henty. Captain Bayley is voiced by the masterful John Rhys-Davies, who is joined by a talented cast that includes Jade Williams, Ian Porter, Finty Williams, David Shaw-Parker, and many more.
Fans of radio theatre are in for a rollicking adventure as Frank, at only 18 years of age, leaves England on a voyage to America in hopes of making his own way, proving himself to his uncle, Captain Harold Bayley, and eventually clearing his name. Along the way Frank meets a variety of interesting characters, some of whom point him to the grace of God as the way to find peace from his troubled past.
Will Frank survive the dangers of the wagon train, will he strike gold, or strike out? Will his uncle ever believe he was unjustly accused? Order your family a copy of Captain Bayley’s Heir to find out and get ready for an adventure to remember.
