THE DEVIL AND TOM WALKER
by Washington Irving (1783-1859) New England
The morality play is a genre of Medieval and early Tudor theatrical entertainment.
In their own time, these plays were known as interludes, a broader term given to dramas with or without a moral. Morality plays have a type of hidden meaning, in which the main human character is met by the devil in various disguises who tempts and entices the mortal and tricks him into selling his soul to the Devil in return for worldly goods and therefore choosing an evil life over a Godly path.
THE DEVIL AND TOM WALKER follows in the long tradition of variety plays.

About Pipp Hamilton
Pipe Hamilton started recording in 2013 with National Talking Newspapers and Magazines on a weekly basis with the material ranging from Saga to the Morning Star, later to become RNIB Newsagent. Then, in 2014, he went on a day's basic voiceover course with the intention of picking up some pointers to improve his listeners' experience.
To his surprise, because he had not heard his own recorded voice in that way before, he was encouraged to return in March 2015 to record a narrative and a commercial reel.
In the meantime, he had agreed to be one of the narrators in a local amateur dramatics production, set in the First World War. The piece he was given was Dulce et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen. On the last night, he was approached and asked to record the piece to be used in training potential officer material in the British Army.
