A play for broadcasting by Mary Renault
[Starring] Peter Claughton

[Preview]
Mary Renault's radio play, The God of the Crossroads, takes us back to the Peloponnesian War and the extraordinary career of the Greek warrior Alcibiades, who played into the hands of his political opponents by his contempt for the worship of Hermes. The epic story of the rise and fall of a demagogue is chronicled here with calm authority. (Monday, Home) (Reginald Moore)
