Inspired by the stories of Baron Munchausen by Rudolf Erich Raspe our tales are not a literal adaptation but instead take the satirical, provocative and absurd spirit of the original tales and re imagines them for 2020.
These fantastical stories are perfectly suited to an immersive audio experience which has, at its heart, the powerful, witty and commanding storytelling of its central character.
But don`t get too comfortable.
Something dark always lies just underneath the comedy.
Something desperate to get out…
The charismatic and reclusive Brigadier Munchausen is visited, online, by the mysterious Smith. Has he written his pages? Munchausen obliges and reveals some extraordinary incidents from his early life: A boy on the run, a fight with a seven-foot sailor, and a romantic affair involving a whale. These extraordinary events all serve to propel our hero into the realisation that he is destined to save the world. But who is Smith and why has he been sent? Why does the Brigadier fear email? And, most of all, what really happened to him in Raqqa? Comedy, Fantasy and Daring Deeds all combine with the sadness of a genius who simply doesn’t belong…
