Talking Heads

Alan Bennett’s classic monologues that never get old. The timelessness has now become so clear that you are moved to tears by the sentimentality of “A Cream Cracker Under The Settee” and still jump from your chair at the word ‘fuck’ in “A Lady Of Letters”. 

And then of course there’s always time to puzzle over “A Chip In The Sugar” where it could really be Graham’s secret and not his mother’s. Which is the sort of thing that postmodernism does to you in the 21st century, at the decidedly old-fashioned Theatre Royal Bath.
