Three of Alan Bennett’s scintillating monologues.

Tweed Theatre presents Talking Heads by Alan Bennett

This selection from Bennett’s scintillating monologues shows all the hallmarks of the author’s brilliance. Darkly comic, sadly poignant, each piece illuminates the humanity of the beautifully observed and, ultimately, uplifting characters.

In A Lady of Letters Miss Ruddock writes spiteful letters until the police turn up – “We’re asking you because who was it wrote to the chemist saying his wife was a prostitute?”

Graham in A Chip in the Sugar reacts to his Mum’s past admirer – “A man shouldn’t be living with his mother at your age, Frank says.”

In Her Big Chance Lesley, a small parts actress, deludedly thinks the big time’s coming- “The director wants to see your knockers.”

By turns melancholic, richly funny, above all true, Bennett’s characters stay permanently in the audience’s heads, enriching their view of the human condition.
