2 Talking Heads by Alan Bennett

2 Talking Heads by Alan Bennett

'A Lady of Letters' followed by 'Bed Among the Lentils' - both written by Alan Bennett and performed by Deborah Kelly of the Library Touring Theatre Company in a special live theatre production to raise funds on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support for the Sir Robert Ogden Cancer Support Centre at the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton.

Alan Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with this series of 12 ground-breaking monologues. Darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting the series of ‘Talking Heads’ is widely regarded as a modern classic.

A Lady of Letters

Miss Ruddock’s civil liberties are dear to her, and writing letters is how she likes to assert those rights. One of these missives pushes her to the brink, with unexpected, but liberating consequences.

Bed Among the Lentils

Susan, an alcoholic, nervous vicar's wife who has to travel into Leeds to go to the off-licence because of her debts with the local shopkeeper, distracts herself from her ambitious and, as she sees him, vainly insensitive husband and his doting parishioners, by conducting an affair with a nearby grocer, Ramesh, discovering something about herself and God in the process.
