Two comedy/dramas by Britain’s best-loved writer, Alan Bennett, taken from the BBC’s popular series TALKING HEADS

 

Bed Among the Lentils – by Alan Bennett, starring Loveday Smith.
Vicar’s wife Susan is an atheist; and an alcoholic, who turns to an Indian shopkeeper for salvation.

 A Chip in the Sugar – by Alan Bennett, starring Mark Winstanley.
Closet-case Graham lives with his ageing, widowed mother. His humdrum existence is suddenly jeopardised by her old flame.

THE PLAYS

These two classic, comedy dramas tour the Netherlands in June 2018. Though tinged with sadness, both provide their fair share of laughs, from Susan’s drunken attempts at flower arranging to gay, Graham’s hilarious encounter with the local vicar.

Talking Heads first aired on BBC television in two series, being nominated for no fewer than thirteen BAFTA awards. Amongst the nominees were Maggie Smith, Julie Walters, Patricia Routledge and Thora Hird, who won Best Actress BAFTAs for both her appear-ances. Seen as classics of their genre they are studied in school and have had successful West End and New York theatre runs.

LOVEDAY SMITH

Loveday Smith started her acting career in London’s West End, in the-atre and musicals, working for directors like Sam Mendes and the late Sir Peter Hall. She has made many TV and film appearances including Coronation Street, Heartbeat and recently Hunter Street for Nick-elodeon. QETC devotees will also remember her as loveable, good-time girl, Dolly, in One Man, Two Guvnors.

MARK WINSTANLEY

QETC’s Artistic Director returns to the stage, having directed many of Bennett’s plays. A child-actor, Mark has played roles from Shakespeare to Sondheim. Musical highlights include playing Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Barrie Stevens. He recently filmed a small role in Lyrebird, a major film starring Guy Pearce. As well as voiceovers and di-recting, Mark is a character actor regularly performing for Mme. Tussaud’s, in English, French and Dutch.
