Talking Heads - A Lady of Letters & A Bed Among the Lentils

Talking Heads -
A Lady of Letters & A Bed Among the Lentils

by Alan Bennett

Bedlamb theatre brings you two classic monologues of 20th century British writing with a production of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads. Bennett uses a rich canvas of recognisable references and everyday life to paint a picture of two seemingly trapped women who find freedom in unconventional ways. The master of capturing our daily rituals, undermined with biting wit, these stories show how the pain of isolation can separate us from achieving our dreams and desires.

    Paler, Still

    by Oonagh Wall in collaboration with the company.

    Nothing grows in Dublin anymore.
    Concrete, glass and grey. The landscape is the same everywhere,
    Beyond the Pale, in the rural Irish boglands, an abandoned Hotel rots.
    This would be a safe place to stagnate.
    Or so it seems.
    Set in a near-future Ireland were the Western World has eaten itself into anonymity and another recession: Paler, Still is a new tragi-comedy and is anseo|anois theatre's debut production.
    Paler, Still tells a story set in Ireland, but it is not just a story for the Irish. This small country is a microcosm for something we see happening all over the Western World. The poverty gap widens, some opportunities only available to a select few, society circling back on itself again and again and our play asks, what is the cost of progress? What is lost as we charge into the future? Are some people always left behind? And, if we despair at society, can we simply opt out?

    Prison Dialogues

    by Mike Hewitt

    By Mark C. Hewitt, whose play The Revenge Fantasy Club was shortlisted for the Best New Play Award at Brighton Fringe 2013. Prison Dialogues consists of interweaving male and female narratives set in 'the everyday' of prison. Two men, three women, three chairs, and a compelling text full of banter that leans playfully towards the futile but fun. The piece is loosely informed by writer Mark C. Hewitt’s work as an artist in UK prisons. Performed by Leann O’Kasi, Sarah J. Lewis, Araba Jane and two male actors yet to be announced. With incidental music by Peter Copley.
