Talking Heads

Talking Heads


Renowned playwright Alan Bennett’s masterful collection of monologues are beloved to many since they first aired on television over 15 years ago. In these moving and affectionate pieces, Bennett depicts the bittersweet tales of seemingly ordinary and uneventful lives. Poignant and wonderfully observant, this is a rare opportunity to see three of the original Talking Heads live on stage.

A Chip in the Sugar
Middle-aged Graham finds life becoming complicated when his mother, or 'Mam', with whom he still lives, reunites with an old flame.

Lady of Letters
Irene is a one-woman Neighbourhood Watch scheme and her habit of writing letters gets ridiculously out of hand.

A Cream Cracker under the Settee
75 year-old widow Doris, obsessive about tidiness and maintaining her independence, has a fall that decides her future. Made famous by Thora Hird in the original TV series.
