The Garrick is proud to present a selection of Alan Bennett’s much-loved classic monologues, giving us a glimpse into the lives of ordinary British people. Each tale gives us privileged access to the innermost thoughts of an individual, who, although we only hear his or her side of the story, frequently reveals more about him or herself than intended.
Alan Bennett broke new dramatic ground when this series of monologues appeared on BBC TV in 1988. The stories are poignant, sometimes sad, occasionally uplifting, and they all showcase Alan Bennett’s powers of observation, comic timing and exquisite turn of phrase.
