Originally each episode of their initial radio show looked at a different Faversham brother, the sons of Kentish aristocrat Sir Digby Faversham and his wife Lady Alexandra... The British Empire's sexiest, deadliest, and most pregnant secret agent. From fighting wars to solving crimes, to great explorers to amazing magicians, there is not one field that the brothers failed to impress in.
Since 2009 the troupe have been recording a series of plays on various historical subjects. Their first covered the live of Guy Fawkes. Their second, in 2011, covered the French Revolution. A third, on Boxing Day 2012 covered the forgotten English rebel Hereward The Wake.
