Simple things make the past come flooding back. For Alan Bennett in Untold Stories, it's the hymns of his childhood and a tub of forgotten cocktail sticks found at the back of his parents' kitchen cupboard. In this gorgeous double bill, Alan returns, with the help of George Fenton's stirring original score and a live string quartet, to both his childhood home and his parents' final years, exploring with wit, warmth and wisdom, the values, dreams and difficulties that shaped their lives.. Following its premiere at the National Theatre last year, West Yorkshire Playhouse is delighted to stage the first major revival of Alan's poignant, highly personal piece about love, family, music and loss from the perspective of an Armley childhood.Performers Reece Dinsdale (Alan Bennett), Kate Anthony, John Arthur, Simon Roberts, Marjorie Yates.
