★★★★ “At first appearance this trio of talking heads might seem like gentle entertainments to be taken in with a cup of tea, but Sarah Esdaile’s production is a reminder that they are upsetting enough to leave you wanting to crack open the gin, and subversive without being condescending.”
★★★★ "Laced with generous supplies of humour ... Bennett's TV monologues
transfer effortlessly to the Theatre Royal's stage"
"Glistens with gold - Stephanie Cole matches the hallowed
memory of Thora Hird, high praise"
“This trio of Alan Bennett monologues may be dated but it still resonates”
"Sarah Esdaile’s production, with these three fine actors
capturing every nuance of the characters, is beautifully done and
a delight for Bath audiences"
