Talking Heads - Nights in the Gardens of Spain & Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet 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. Nights in the Garden of Spain - Rosemary recalls the morning she was accosted by her neighbour Fran, who'd shot her husband. Though she's been sexually abused for five years, Fran is given a two-year sentence; and as Rosemary's friendship with her deepens, she has to look again at her own marriage. Tamsin Grieg plays Rosemary. Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet - Miss Fozzard has a new chiropodist, Mr. Dunderdale, whose attention to her feet seems sometimes to go beyond the line of duty. Their weekly appointments soon raise the tricky question of who's treating whom? Maxine Peake plays Miss Fozzard.
