Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads
A Lady Of Letters
“I passed the place where there was the broken step. I wrote to the council. Little ramp there now, access for the disabled. Whenever I pass I think, ‘Well, that’s thanks to you, Irene. My monument that ramp.’” Irene reflects on her role in the community and the importance in maintaining proper values.

Bed Among The Lentils
“Thinking about the sermon during the hymn, I felt a pang of sympathy for the Deity, gifted with all this sex.” Vicar’s wife Susan experiments with some life choices to get some control.
A Chip In The Sugar
“Now, if there’s one thing Mother and I agree on, it’s that red is a common colour.” Graham wrestles with his mother’s newly-found desire for independence and worries about a future without her.
