Listeners will be captivated by this moving tale of good versus evil through the life of winsome young sailor Billy Budd. Aboard a 1700s British warship, virtuous Billy is unfairly accused of treason by the villainous Master of Arms - a cold-blooded superior officer intent on Billy's destruction. Adapted from Herman Melville's famous novel and presented by Focus on the Family's Peabody Award winning Radio Theatre team, Billy Budd will remind listeners of another man, perfectly just, who suffered and died a criminal's death.

Unmatched, Focus on the Family’s Radio Theatre is award winning with performance from internationally acclaimed actors.
