Talking Heads - A Studio performance at The Tabard Theatre.
Talking Heads, directed by Sharyn Hildreth, will be presented at The Tabard Theatre in early November as a fundraiser for the maintenance of Napier’s very own Tabard Theatre.
Written by Alan Bennett, he broke new dramatic ground when the series of monologues, Talking Heads, gave audiences a glimpse into the lives of ordinary British people, appearing on BBC TV in 1988. Such was their popularity that they have since moved on to BBC radio, international theatre and even the A-level syllabus in the UK. They have also become one of the bestselling audio book releases of all time.
Each tale gives us privileged access to the innermost thoughts of an individual, who, although we only hear his/her side of the story, frequently reveals more about him/herself than intended.
Alan Bennett is famous for his Lady in the Van film which highlighted his own life as well as that of the character played by Maggie Smith.
