UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

About the Show/Event

Talking Heads - Playing Sandwiches & Lady of Letters
Find the best Talking Heads - Playing Sandwiches & Lady of Letters play tickets at Bridge Theatre, Inner London. A series of monologues, funny and poignant, normally from two to four of these would be performed at a time. A Cream Cracker Under The Settee tells of an old woman who has a fall, but her pride doesn't allow her to accept help. Bed Among the Lentils tells of a woman with a drink problem, married to a vicar who exploits her recovery actually caused by an affair with an Indian shopkeeper. A Lady of Letters is the story of a woman obsessed with writing letters of complaint and reporting her neighbours who eventually finds comfort in prison. Soldiering On is the tale of a well-to-do woman who finds one day that she's a widow and her husband has left her ill equipped to handle her own affairs - and her son loses her money in bad investments. Playing Sandwiches - Wilfred is a parks attendant with a fondness for liquorice allsorts. After he befriends a seven-year-old girl and her mother on the bandstand, it starts to become clear why his employers can't trace his records. Lucian Msamati plays Wilfred Lady of Letters - Irene Ruddock spends her life dashing off letters of complaint.
