An Evening with the

Talking Heads by Alan Bennett



A Lady of Letters               Joan Kuster

All the best intentions of Miss Irene Ruddock together with her literary flair enhanced by her vivid imagination and ability to expect the worst, lead her into a situation which most people would find unpleasant. However, this situation brings an element into her life which has been sadly lacking before.



Her Big Chance                   Cynthia Baer

Aspiring actress Lesley has barely (literally) made it to RTL standards, but she remains unflaggingly optimistic and a fervent believer in self-improvement. Unfortunately, her positive self-image is woefully out of kilter with the way the rest of the world has her pegged.



Bed among the Lentils          Diana Zuger

Susan is the vicar's wife, frustrated, unsure of herself and dissatisfied with her life as it is. She sardonically relates her everyday routine and finds comfort in alcohol wihich subsequently leads her into other heady escapades.
