Talking Heads

From: September 2, 2024, till September 7, 2024,

By Alan Bennett

A Lady of Letters
Irene puts pen to paper to complain about the many, many wrongs she sees around her. However, she ends up on the wrong side of the law when she misreads completely the situation of the family living in the house opposite.

A Cream Cracker under the Settee
Doris, a widow, lives alone. Refusing to relinquish her independence, she cleans when her home help, Zulema, is absent. We meet her having just fallen whilst attempting to dust a picture frame high on the wall.

Bed among the Lentils
Susan is a vicar’s wife suffocated by the expectations forced on her by her position and her husband’s parishioners. Also an alcoholic who travels into Leeds to go to the off-licence because of her debts with the local shopkeeper, she embarks on an affair with the off-licence owner, Ramesh.
