The Augustine Institute Radio Theatre has announced the release of their second audio drama production, The Trials of Saint Patrick. The story of Saint Patrick is brought to life by a cast of over 30 actors. The production is divided into 8 episodes totaling a running time of approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes.




Synopsis of the audio drama:
The Trials of Saint Patrick is the epic story of one man’s spiritual odyssey through hardship, loss, mercy, and forgiveness. Patricius of Britain was the privileged son of a Roman official. At the age of sixteen, he was suddenly taken and enslaved by foreign pirates from Hibernia—a land now known as Ireland. For six years the newly named Patrick suffered at the hands of cruel masters and was abandoned to isolation as a shepherd. He endured the extreme weather, starvation, and loneliness. Yet, in the midst of these trials, God was preparing Patrick to evangelize a nation.

The script, written by Paul McCusker, is based in part on writings from Patrick himself. The drama stars John Rhys-Davies in the role of the elder Patrick and Seán T. Ó Meallaigh as the younger Patrick. The original score was composed by Jared DePasquale* and features vocalist, Sarah van der Ploeg and medieval woodwinds musician, Jessica Baran-Surel. Also included in the cast are many familiar names such as Ian Cullen, Elizabeth Counsell, Dominic Hecht and Jade Williams.
