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.
