Talking Heads – Orpen Players new production

Alan Bennett's Talking HeadsAlan Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with a series of ground breaking monologues originally filmed for BBC Television. Darkly Comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting. Talking Heads is widely regarded as a modern classic.

The Orpen Players have transformed Talking Heads from just a monologue to an acting form taking three of Bennett’s plays A Lady of Letters, A Chip in the Sugar and Bed Among the Lentils onto the stage at the Orpen Hall, West Bergholt.

Talking Heads places Alan Bennett in the highest tier of English dramatic writers

New York Times

Bennett’s genius is his ability to satirize humanely, his prose is like stained glass: if you star at it, you see things you missed

New York Times Book Review

It’s hardly a revelation to say that Alan Bennett has proved himself a master of modern dramatic monologue… One of the finest dramatic achievements of the past decades
