I'm looking for a specific audio book...

Hey. You guys and gals have helped me out before, answering questions and such. I was hoping for another helping hand.

I need an audio version of "Fences" by August Wilson. My wife is taking a theater class but she is working overtime and is wanting to listen to the play at work. I have searched all of my usual places (torrent, Usenet, Audible, the library, etc) but cannot find it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Does it definitely exist in audio? I can't find it anywhere either.

Thanks for checking. I'm not sure if it even exists in audiobook form. It seems to be a popular assigned reading for college English classes so I was hoping to find it. Even a video might work as she could listen to it on her iPod.

Might have better luck getting it as an e-book? If she has an iPod Touch she could read it while working? Or get a screen reader and listen to a robot read it? Other than that, I'm out! Sorry buddy!

Yeah, I checked my main sources and I don't see any signs of it existing in audiobook. I've found it in e-books and paperback for cheap though...

I'll try a few more places and let you know if I find anything.

Thanks for all the help. She has the book (came in the textbook bundle for the class) and she also has a Nook, but she can't read at work (factory job).
I actually thought about recording myself reading it for her if I couldn't find it.

I'd be willing to help you record it if I had the book....I've been THAT bored this summer...lol, we could split up the chapters or something.

It's not really that long. I had to read it last year in my English class.

I just found out she has to have it read by Monday (summer classes are compressed into short time frames and we are working this weekend) so I guess she will just have to take the time Sunday night to read it.

Thanks for the offer though. I knew you guys would help if you could!

Fences - Google Books

It's a Google Book too!

This isn't the audiobook either, but it looked like a helpful website to better understand the play in an educational context:
