By Alan Bennett.
Here are three of Alan Bennett’s much-loved collection of monologues. The stories are poignant, sometimes sad, occasionally uplifting, and they all showcase the author’s powers of observation, comic timing and exquisite turn of phrase.
A Chip in the Sugar Life for Graham (Bill Allender) and his elderly mother has settled into a comfortable pattern when a face from the past appears to threaten his peace of mind.
Bed Among the Lentils Susan (Maxine Roach) doesn’t feel she has any of the talents needed to be a vicar’s wife and finds herself seeking comfort elsewhere.
Her Big Chance Lesley (Bertie Hustwayte) is an actress who works hard at her craft but needs a career leg-up. Will a chance encounter at a party provide just the break she needs?
Directed by Peter Mould.
Originally performed in The Hastings Fringe 2016 at The Stables Theatre co-directed by Heather Alexander.
