Alan Bennett's Talking Heads

The TV monologues of British playwright and author, Alan Bennett, retain their impact as a marvellous feat in storytelling. British performers such as Sarah Lancashire, Martin Freeman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville reenact the same heartbreaking, hysterical and fully-embodied way they were delivered in the 1980’s. Co-produced by BBC One and London Theatre Company.




Alan Bennett’s beloved TV monologues were first broadcast to audiences in 1988. Over three decades later, new versions are recreated with an array of high-profile British performers.
