Alan Bennett, renowned English playwright, screenwriter, actor and author, wrote the Talking Heads monologues for television in the 1980s. Reflecting his witty and poignant observations of life in his native Yorkshire they are entertaining and thought-provoking. 'Talking Heads' received three BAFTA nominations in 1989, of which Thora Hird won best actress for 'A Cream Cracker Under the Settee'.
In Bed Among the Lentils Susan, the wife of a vicar, struggles with her role and her beliefs, not to mention the good ladies of the parish who monopolise the flower arranging. Featuring Anna Rawlings, and directed by Joan Nordlund
Doris, an elderly widow with an obsessive aversion to dust and mess, brings about her own downfall in A Cream Cracker Under the Settee. Featuring Joan Nordlund, and directed by Christian Jull
