Talking Heads

T209470042
A 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.
Author Alan Bennett

Her Big Chance/Bed Among the Lentils

Her Big Chance 'My hobby is people' says Lesley 'I collect people' - An admirable trait in a aspiring actress except that sadly, Lesley's career highlights so far seems to have been as background in a 'finger buffet' in Crossroads. Then a casual meeting at a party leads to her big chance. Should she be worried that the film she's up for is aimed at the video market....In Germany and Turkey? Or that, when it comes to her costume Gunther, the director, seems to feel that less is more? Maybe not! After all, as she points out, 'acting is really just giving'. Bed Among the Lentils - Susan is a failure when it comes to jam-making and flower-arranging and isn't at all sure about God. unfortunately for her she is married to Geoffrey, a popular and respected vicar who treats her in an intensely patronising manner and expects her to conform to her role as vicar's wife at all times. Susan finds temporary solace through alcohol and an affair with a young Indian shopkeeper.
