Alan Bennett’s Office Suite consists of two one act plays: namely A Visit from Miss Prothero and Green Forms. They were written in the late 1970’s – pre-office computers and modern technology.
Bennett’s acute and succinct scripts enables us to identify human nature at close range, involving pathos and humour – often in the same sentence! Observations of ‘office’ procedures – albeit set in an earlier decade – strikes a chord which many will identify in today’s business world.
The characters are recognisable today which makes these two one act plays relevant and accessible to a modern audience.
A Visit from Miss Prothero:
Miss Prothero: Trisha Osborne-King
Mr Dodsworth: Felix Catto
Millie: Tweetie Pie
Doris: Karen O’Neill
Doreen: Emma Kerby-Evans
Lomax: Alexander Macdonald
