In February 2015 we announced on the AIO Update that Adventures in Odyssey writer and director Paul McCusker had left Focus on the Family and taken the position of Senior Director of Content Creation at the Augustine Institute. Now we have exciting news that Paul has teamed up with producers Dave Arnold and Philip Glassborow to create a new audio drama called Brother Francis: The Barefoot Saint of Assisi, featuring the voice talents of David Suchet, Harry Lloyd, Raffey Cassidy, Geoffrey Palmer, and many more. The drama will release in November and be available via radio broadcast and for purchase on CD and digital download. You can read an excerpt from the official press release here:
Denver’s Augustine Institute has announced a major new initiative in audio and radio production called Augustine Institute Radio Theatre (A.I.R. Theatre). Employing the highest quality production in sound, music and voice-talent, A.I.R. Theatre will present a variety of stories from a mix of genres to provide inspiration and entertainment for the entire family.
Spear-headed by writer and director Paul McCusker, A.I.R. Theatre will launch in November 2016 with a ten-part dramatization of the life of St. Francis of Assisi. “We’ve just recorded in London with some of Britain’s most renowned actors,” said McCusker. “Their performances truly bring the story of St. Francis alive.”
