Talking Heads is a series of dramatic monologues written by Alan Bennett and thought by many to be one of his best dramatic achievements.
Fylde Coast Players are pleased to bring you four of the monologues.
A Lady of Letters Miss Ruddock writes letters - not, unfortunately, social communications but letters of complaint, and, occasionally, officious praise to various businesses and government departments. As a result of her complaints, she ends up in prison where possibly for the first time, she is happy.
A Chip in the Sugar Graham, a middle-aged bachelor, emotionally unintelligent and chronically dependent on his mother, finds life difficult enough at the best of times. When Mother meets an old flame and seems set to marry him. Graham's insecurities rear their ugly heads. Fate, eventually, rescues Graham and he resumes his normal life of banal muddle under his mother's amnesiac tyranny.
A Bed among the Lentils Susan is a vicar’s wife suffocated by the expectations forced on her by her position and her husband’s over-zealous parishioners. She is an alcoholic who travels to Leeds to go to the off-licence because of her debts with the local shopkeeper. In frustration, she embarks on an affair with the off-licence owner, Ramesh, discovering something about herself and God in the process. Her Big Chance Meet Lesley, an actress. She has just completed a video in which she plays Travis, a career girl who enjoys life, spends a remarkable amount of time topless and shoots a man with a harpoon gun. She tells all, blind to the sinister undertones of her story as well as to her own self-delusions and gullibility.
