Michaelmas Week 4
An award-winning television series, Talking Heads looks wryly at the everyday quirks of human life. Now the Amateur Dramatic Club brings three of the best of these monologues to the Corpus Christi Playroom.
Bed Among the Lentils
Susan is the wife of the vicar. And an alcoholic. Plagued by her husband's female 'fan club' and the pettiness of the church flower arrangers, she finds solace in the arms of an Indian grocer.
Her Big Chance
Lesley is an actress. A serious one. So when she has the opportunity to star in a film she grabs it with both hands. Oblivious to the true nature of her starring role, her insistence on her 'professionalism' is touchingly comic.
A Chip in the Sugar
Graham lives with his elderly mother. Utterly dependent on their relationship he is bitterly jealous when she begins a friendship with another man, and their orderly, well-structured life is threatened.
NB: These performances replace David Hare's The Blue Room as previously advertised.
