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. In A Woman of No Importance everything appears to be well in Miss Margaret Schofield's life until she has the steak bits for lunch in the works canteen... In A Chip in the Sugar middle-aged Graham's ordered life with Mother is disrupted when flash Mister Turnbull comes to call...Two of Bennett's finest and most moving monologues are performed displaying the emotional complexity underneath the famous social observation.
