Notes:  In Winter Rain, playwright Anthony Padovano chronicles the life of Thomas Merton, Trappist monk and author of bestsellers such as "The Seven Storey Mountain", from his initial journey to a Cistercian monastery in 1941 to his death twenty-seven years later. The listener joins Merton as he struggles with monastic life, his mother's death, and a society torn by war and racism. Neil Bradley gives a mesmerizing performance in his audio adaptation, enhanced throughout by artful placement of sound effects.
