Beschreibung von Audible

If you were sent a few drops of the Fountain of Youth, what would you do? In "Dr. Heidigger’s Experiment", a short story by early American master Nathaniel Hawthorne, a group of "worried" and "woeful" old people are convened by the eccentric Dr. Heidigger and given the opportunity to find out.

In a slightly ironic and grandiloquent style, performer Jack Benson introduces the listener to Hawthorne’s comic gaggle of the grizzled, including the faded beauty, the retired libertine, and the failed politician. The question becomes: if you were returned to youth, would you do it any differently than you did it the first time?

Inhaltsangabe

Old Dr. Heidigger calls a few of his friends together to try a new "elixer of life" designed to make them all young again. The results are not what any of them had bargined for and, as is often the case with Hawthorne, the story teaches a valuable lesson.
