Tonight Riel Theatre presents two classic short tales but in very different styles. First up is The Captain of the Polestar by Arthur Conan Doyle, and dramatised by Marty RossFrom for BBC Radio. Starring Alec Heggie, Nick Underwood, Brian Pettifer and James Bryce, it tells of a Dundee whaling ship trapped in the arctic. Strange cries sound across the ice at night and a figure is glimpsed on the floes. Is it the Captain’s lost love come to reclaim him?

After that The Tailor of Gloucester by Beatrix Potter, the children’s tale of a poor tailor who has just three days to finish a suit for the Mayor, and the mice who live in his shop. Dramatised by Sarah Woods for BBC radio and starring David Hargreaves, David Holt and David Timson with Miriam Margolyes as the narrator.
