review of talking heads

by Arthur Rochester When November’s planned production of Hedda Gabler had to be replaced, Pauline Armour’s choice of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads could be described as inspired. Originally written for nineteen-eighties television, these monologues are ideally suited to live performance in a small auditorium and, on the evening I attended, received one of the most enthusiastic responses I can recall at BLT for some time. Straight from directing what she described as ‘a cast of thousands’ in Great Britain, Pauline, sharing […]
