Untold Stories: Cocktail Sticks

Untold Stories: Cocktail SticksT185385519
Cocktail Sticks, an oratorio without music that revisits some of the themes and conversations of Alan Bennett's memoir A Life Like Other People's. A son talks to his dead father as his mother yearns for a different life. It's funny, tender and sad. The pinnacle of my social life is a scrutty bit of lettuce and tomato and some tinned salmon. Mind you, I read in Ideal Home that if you mix tinned salmon with this soft cheese you can make it into one of those moussy things. Shove a bit of lemon on it and it looks really classy. Cocktail sticks is coupled with Hymn and both are presented together on Sunday double bills
Author Alan Bennett
