This is a celebration of all that was unique and astonishing about Douglas Adams’ talent, in aid of his favourite cause, SAVE THE RHINO INTERNATIONAL and distils the essence of his greatest creation into a live event, performed on stage with music and sound effects as if a classic audience radio recording.
