UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.


Talking Heads - A Woman of No Importance/A Chip in the Sugar archiveA 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. 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.
Author Alan Bennett.
