Book Description

2 April 2007
Three classic Alan Bennett adaptations, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and released on CD for the first time. "A Visit from Miss Prothero": Since Mr Dodsworth retired, he has had all the time in the world. Then he has a visitor from his old firm - Miss Prothero, who is eager to tell him all the news..."Say Something Happened": A naive, inexperienced social worker calls on an elderly couple - but does she need more help than they do? "Two in Torquay": A middle-aged man and a middle-aged woman engage in polite conversation in a hotel on the Cornish Riviera. But neither is quite who they appear to be. Who is deceiving whom? Amusing, ironic and affectionate, these three adaptations feature Hugh Lloyd,Patricia Routledge, Judi Dench, Thora Hird, Brian Wilde, Imelda Staunton and Alan Bennett himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Bennett..... 9 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
3 of Alan Bennett`s short plays including 2 of his favourite leading ladies , Dame Thora and Patricia Routledge. I had read the first two before , the third , a dialogue between himself and Dame Judi Dench was a stranger to me . This collection is classic Bennett at it`s very best -- a joy to listen to . Hopefully more of his early works will find their way onto disc soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Alan Bennett 23 Nov 2009
By Alan
Format:Audio CD
Alan Bennett is the master of observation of the querkiness of people and situations. The 3 tales in the triple bill are wonderful examples of this, made even more enjoyable by the superb selection of the casts of these mini radio plays.
A joy to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Audiobook 28 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Three short stories written and adapted into mini plays by the author,Alan Bennett. Each play takes an unexpected turn of events which leave the listener thinking and amused by the outcome. I have listened to this disc several times and always enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life after Talking Heads 8 Dec 2008
By Bob Sherunkle TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This collection of three two-handers is as good as the two series of "Talking Heads", and stylistically in similar mould. As always, the plots have a twist in the tail, and the casting is perfect - all the actors are Bennett regulars, including Bennett himself. The first two stories, though with comic moments, have serious undertones of unfulfilled wishes and nostalgia (again typical Alan Bennett) whereas the last is pure black comedy.

Another gem from possibly the most literate and entertaining author in Britain today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triple Bill 12 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
A trilogy of very amusing, poignant stories, starring Patricia Routledge, Judi Dench, Hugh Lloyd, Imelda Staunton, Thora Hird, Brian Wilde, and even the author himself, Alan Bennett. Many 'laugh out loud' moments and a tonic after a hard day's work!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant CD 29 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
I put it onto my Ipod and a flight never seemed so short. It not only gives you an excellent picture of the time but you also want to keep listening in order to find out what happens to all the characters. - And who could describe it better than Alan Bennet?

5.0 out of 5 stars Alan Bennett Triple Bill CD 24 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
A good bargain : three Bennett pieces for the one price.
He's such a talented writer : and these stories are no exception,
with his usual humour,humility and acutely observed situations that we can all relate to.

Thankfully, though I'd ordered the CD late, the package arived early, in time to give as a gift.
