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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

What can you say about Alan Bennett? He just observes human life and reproduces all our idiosyncracies to perfection. It's on my iPod and I have listened to it several times. There are some wonderful moments - especially from Thora Hird, God bless her. Alan Bennett can make you laugh out loud one minute and cry the next. Don't miss it.
