Her Big Chance/This Is Me

Alan Bennett's Her Big Chance is a dramatic monologue conceived as part of his Talking Heads series for television, originally broadcast in 1988. Talking Heads has also enjoyed success on the stage, and on the radio. Her Big Chance tells the funny story of Lesley, an aspiring actress who is offered what she believes to be her big break in a new film for the West German market. Hearing her story, we start to glimpse her naivety, and realise that this isn't perhaps the shortcut to the big time she expected it to be! Also presented is This is Me by Diane Samuels writer of Kindertransport, performed at Chickenshed back in 2016. This is a newly commissioned autobiographical piece where Samuels explores the form of monolog by inviting the audience to be a part of her story. Audiences can enjoy entering a young child's probing and engaging mind.
