Talking Heads

Age Concern Exeter is celebrating the talents of playwright, and national treasure, Alan Bennett in two nights of rehearsed readings of his much applauded Talking Heads series. The monologues will be performed by staff and supporters of Age Concern Exeter on Wednesday 3rd and Friday 12th November at The Globe Hotel in Topsham, starting at 7.30pm. The first show features ‘Her Big Chance’ and ‘A Cream Cracker Under The Settee’, performed by Beth Kennedy and Nichola Weate while the second showcases ‘A Chip In The Sugar’ and ‘Bed Among The Lentils’ with Tony Harvey and Corinne Bailey bringing Alan Bennett’s words to life.

Martyn Rogers, Age Concern Exeter’s director said “In these difficult times we are looking at a whole range of new fundraising events to support our services for older people in Exeter. I am really excited that through the keen acting talents of some of our staff and the help of Beth, a drama student at Exeter University, people can enjoy Alan Bennett’s brilliant monologues as theatre in the lovely atmosphere of the Globe Hotel. The shows will be both moving and funny and provide a great evening out. All the proceeds from the shows will go to help fund our service providing support and information to carers of people with dementia”.
