Alan Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with a series of 12 groundbreaking monologues, Talking Heads, originally filmed for BBC Television. At once darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting, Talking Heads is widely regarded as a modern classic.
This May, Tip Top have Andy Jordan directing a production at The Forum Studio Theatre from 12th-21st.
Alan Bennett’s characteristic wit and subtlety allows us to see into the lonely, helpless worlds the narrators are trapped in. His monologues are wonderful observations of humanity, and always go beyond what is apparent at face value
As we learn more about these lives, the humour serves the dual purpose of entertaining and deepening the pathos of the situation.
