Talking Heads - A Chip in the Sugar/Lady of Letters/A Cream Cracker under the Settee 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 Chip in the Sugar - Middle-aged Graham finds life becoming complicated when his mother, or "Mam", with whom he still lives, reunites with an old flame. Lady of Letters - Irene is a one-woman Neighbourhood Watch scheme and her habit of writing letters gets ridiculously out of hand.
